Give Yourself the Gift Of Good Health
** The following is adapted from a story which was originally published in Downingtown Neighbors Magazine.
During the holiday season we see a culture of gift giving and receiving. This holiday season and into the new year give yourself the gift of dental health and a new smile! We all absolutely love to give that one perfect give to a significant other, a family member, or a son/daughter. This holiday season don’t be afraid to also take care of yourself. At Angstadt Family Dental we strive to help our patients not only in their oral health but also in their general health. Here in this brief article, I’d like to give you some tips to take care of your oral and general health and also some information on what technologies and techniques we have at Angstadt Family Dental to improve your smile.
Annual Medical Checkups
One simple yet overlooked way to improve and sustain your health is to simply receive regular one year check-ups with a primary care physician, then follow-ups with a dermatologist and optometrist, as well as regular six month check-ups and cleanings with a dentist. It seems easy to simply go to appointments and take advantage of insurances, such as yearly dental insurance maximums, but not everyone realizes the importance of these simple and short visits. Here we can help educate our patients, give them advice on how to stay healthy, and answer questions you may have.
Modern Dental Technologies & Techniques
Another way to improve yourself is to take advantage of new technologies and techniques in dentistry. One of these technologies include digital scanning and milling for faster treatment times, like same day crowns, as well as the elimination of gooey and poor tasting impressions. Yet another great way to decrease time in the office and make dentistry pain free is by taking advantage of the dental laser, the Biolase Waterlase iPlus, which we have in both of our offices. These technologies, as well as superior products, like strong all porcelain zirconia crowns and our number 1 rated resin composite restoration material, Harmonize by Kerr Dental, make going to our office a breeze and put past fears to rest.
Prevention Is Key
A tip for EVERYONE to truly practice would be not waiting when there is a problem or it’s been a long time since seeing the dentist. It doesn’t take long for something small to become a big problem. A simple cleaning can do wonders for periodontal/gum and dental health. When we take care of issues when they are small, it saves time, effort, and cost for patients. Always remember, prevention is key! We always help our patients and recommend the right preventive measures for each patient.
Also, if you have dental pain or a broken tooth, don’t wait until it’s too late and a risk to general health like swelling or infection. In our office we always have a dentist available by phone to set up after hour emergency dental appointments. Don’t be afraid to take advantage of myself being available for regular and new dental patients even on holidays!
Holiday Specials – At Angstadt Family Dental
The last thing I’d like to make our community aware of is some holiday season specials for all dental patients! They include no charge consultations and free new patient dental exams and x-rays with a paid dental cleaning. We are also extending to our patients who start dental treatment before the end of January, a reduction in fees. One being a $500 off all esthetic cases for patients, including veneers, crowns, bridges, and implants. We will also be extending a $200 off all individual dentures or $500 off top and bottom denture cases.
During this holiday season we all try to remember how thankful we can be for all that we have. We at Angstadt Family Dental would like to wish all of our Downingtown, Exton & Wyomissing communities a happy, healthy, and wonderful holiday season!
