March is here, which means lots of exciting things! Spring is steadily heading our way, we are that much closer to nice weather in Southlake, TX, and there are holidays on the horizon! Of course, as much as this third month of the year is fun, it also brings some reminders to our patients in regard to oral health. Does that mean your enthusiasm and fun is going to come to a screeching halt? Actually, no! It means that with our help, you can plan to have a lovely time and keep that amazing grin of yours safe in the meantime.
#1: Sleep Apnea Awareness Month!
Surprise! March is Sleep Apnea Awareness Month! That means that you enjoy a month-long reminder that if you have even the slightest suspicion that you may be dealing with an issue that’s causing serious disruption to your nightly sleep cycle, you should do something about it. How to move forward with this oral health related concern, you ask? It’s so easy. Getting started is as simple as calling our practice to let us know you’re having a sleep issue (or that you assume you are because you’re so tired). Set up a visit with our team to come in, so we can help you determine whether sleep apnea treatment is something that will help you or if perhaps you’re dealing with something else!
#2: St. Patrick’s Day
If you’re going to go all out and drink up those vibrant green drinks, stuff your beautiful face with green-iced donuts, and more, then we have a serious recommendation for you: You’ll want to carry a bottle of water with you and some sugarless chewing gum. That way, when you decide to indulge, you’ll be ready to instantly combat the sugars, deeply hued pigments, and more that can lead to smile problems. Remember, if you chew sugarless gum for just under a half hour after a snack, it helps you salivate, helps clean your teeth, and is quite good for your oral health! If you drink water and are serious about swishing it about in your mouth after snacks, etc., this is also exceptionally helpful! (And, it’s very easy!).
