Why It’s Worth Making Time to Visit Your Dentist (Even At the Busiest Time of Your Year)

The holidays are a time to see friends and family. And while we consider our patients living in the 19101 zip code our friends and family, the benefits of making a trip to Gilbert Dental Care go beyond making a social call.

If it has been longer than six months since your last dental check-up, there is no time like the present to take a small amount of time to make a trip to our office. The holiday season can greatly affect your teeth -- from the high-sugar and acidic foods you indulge in at holiday parties to neglecting some of your typical dental care habits due to a busy schedule, the holidays are traditionally a time that can impact your dental health.

By making an appointment at our 19102 dentist’s office, you can have a check-up to ensure your teeth are in healthy condition. From a professional cleaning that removes stuck-on plaque and tartar buildup to an examination from Dr. Carlos Velez or Dr. Steven Gilbert to identify any concerns with your teeth and gums, a dentist’s visit can go a long way to ensure your smile stays healthy.

Sticky plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth over the course of six months. Only our professional tools can remove these cavity-causing materials. By coming in for regular visits, you can work to reduce the pain and discomfort associated with having a cavity.

We hope you will consider taking a short break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season to do something good for your health. We look forward to welcoming you at our office.
