Preparing for Thanksgiving with a Dental Cleaning

Now that Halloween is behind us, we have another great feasting holiday closing in: Thanksgiving. It is time for eating tons of turkey, dressing, and desserts. Chances are your teeth are being hit pretty hard with simple sugars. Our dentists at Bright Value Dental want to ensure that your teeth remain healthy and strong.

Now is the time to get your dental cleaning, especially if you haven’t had one in a while. Dental cleanings should be conducted every six months to ensure there are no cavities or signs of gum disease. If there are any issues in the mouth, then our kids dentists and general dentists will inform you. This enables patients to protect their teeth from further harm.


You may be wondering whether you should receive a dental cleaning before or after Thanksgiving. Actually, either time is fine. Kids definitely need these dental cleanings, especially since we just had Halloween (parents, don’t act like you didn’t eat any of that candy). Kids sometimes struggle to brush their teeth properly. Sometimes they just get into a rush because they want to go do something else. Either way, this can lead to cavities because those simple sugars do not get properly removed. These simple sugars turn into plaque, which eats away at the enamel, ultimately creating cavities.

At Bright Value Dental in Bellaire, our pediatric dentists will get rid of hard-to-remove plaque and polish the teeth to keep kids oral health in pristine condition. Making certain the kids teeth remain healthy now will promote oral health far into their future.


If it has been more than six months since you received a dental cleaning, then contact our dental office in Bellaire and schedule your appointment. Also, before the end of this year, be sure to use your dental insurance. Don’t let your dental insurance run out without taking care of your family’s teeth.
