Hendersonville Dentist Talks Snow
It’s January 16, 2018 and we are getting pounded with another round of snow. Last Friday we had to close the practice due to icy and snow conditions. Today we are getting another round of just snow thankfully. Most of our patients yesterday called to cancel or reschedule their appointments due to the threat of the weather.
When it snows do you brave it and get out in the weather or do you stay inside where it’s warm. I know most of my staff is from other parts other than Hendersonville, so we all like to see who has the most snow in their area. Those that live in the Cottontown or Portland area usually always beat everyone else.
Our Office Is Open
Our office will be open today, so if you do have a dental appointment with us as of right now we are going to be open. Please call before you brave the weather to ensure that we are still open. Please keep an eye on our Facebook or Instagram to make sure we aren’t closing early or any other issues that may arise.
Enjoy your snow day if you are staying in, and be safe if you are driving into work today.
Americans Experience Cardiovascular Issues.
Nearly 50 million Americans experience cardiovascular issues and it is the leading cause of death and disability in the United States. However, the good news is that 80% if cardiac events can be prevented through education and action. You can prevent heart disease, lung disease and stroke by eating healthy, exercising, not smoking and good oral health. That’s right you read that correctly good oral health!
Good Oral Health Includes:
Brush twice daily: Brushing after meals helps remove food debris and plaque trapped between your teeth and gums. Don’t forget to include your tongue, bacteria loves to hide there.
Floss Daily: Flossing at least once a day helps remove food particles and plaque between teeth and along the gum line that your toothbrush can’t quite reach.
Swish & gargle mouthwash daily: Using mouthwash can help reduce plaque and can remove remaining food particles that brushing and flossing miss.
Lastly, know your risk: age, smoking, diet and genetics can all increase your risk for periodontal disease. If you are at increased risk, be sure to talk with Dr. Harbin or Dr. Jones.
If you suspect you have gum disease schedule an appointment with Hendersonville Family Dentistry. We can access your condition and develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
