Happy Fall!

Its autumn time and we want you to “fall” into some good oral health habits! Here are some great tips for brushing up (no pun intended) on your healthy mouth routine.

Fall is a great time to get cozy around a campfire.  Instead of loading up on s’mores around the campfire (filled with sugar that could be damaging to teeth) try this alternative, the “banana s’more”:

“Peel a banana on one side and stuff it with fillings like dark chocolate chips and chopped nuts.  Wrap the stuffed banana in foil and roast it over the campfire for about five minutes, then cool and enjoy!”

Wow.  Not only does that sound healthy, its also sounds amazingly yummy!  Excuse me while I go try that!

Ok, I’m back.  Let me tell you, that was messy, but sooo delicious!  You’ve got to try that!

Fall is also the time when we get back into the swing of things with sports. “If you or your child will be playing sports this fall, make sure there’s a mouth guard on hand…It can help prevent chipped, broken or lost teeth.  Consider getting one before your annual “touch” Thanksgiving football game.  You know someone always ends up tackling!”

We are firm believers and advocate in the benefits of a properly fitted nightguard. Call the office for an appointment to get one today!

“Whether they’re lemon, golden or ochre, watching leaves change color in the fall is a pastime many people enjoy. But the same can’t be said for yellowing teeth. To prevent stains and discoloration from foods, beverages or smoking, talk to your dentist about whitening options. From in-office bleaching sessions to over-the-counter whitening products, your dentist will have insight on the best method for your teeth.”  It is fast, easy and won’t break the bank.  And with the holiday season right around the corner, now is a good time to invest in your smile so you will be ready for all of the coming get -togethers.  Give the office a call today to to make your appointment!

We hope you enjoy this fun season of the year!
