How To Fix Your Smile For Thanksgiving [BLOG]

Your smile is important. It’s important to your confidence because it’s one of the first things people notice about you. It’s also important because your teeth and gums need to be healthy and strong in order to work properly.

So when something happens to affect the way your smile looks and functions, you need to fix the problem. At a time when our minds are focused on the blessing of good health, good friends, and good food, we understand more fully the value of strong teeth. If you want to enjoy the delights of Thanksgiving, you need your teeth to be able to handle the pressure

That’s why our team at Beckham Dental is devoting the blog to how to fix your smile so you can enjoy the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday to the fullest. With restorative dentistry in our Cave Creek, AZ dental office, you’ll be ready to face the season with comfort and confidence.

Smile Problems You Might Need To Fix

Our teeth are built to handle a lifetime of strain and stress. We use our teeth every single day all throughout the day. That’s quite a bit of demand! But again, that’s what our teeth were made for.

But sometimes, there are demands placed on our teeth that lead to damage, and it’s not always the kind of damage our teeth can’t overcome on their own.  We’re talking about problems like:

-Tooth Decay & Cavities

-Gum Disease


-Cracks & Chips

-Worn Teeth

These are just a few of the dental problems you can face in your lifetime. Ignoring them won’t make them go away. In fact, ignoring them will only make them worse. What’s more is that these aren’t all problems that happen overnight, but can take years to happen.

Restorative dentistry, however, allows our team at Beckham Dental to put your teeth back in proper working order. If you need restorative treatment, call our Cave Creek, AZ dental office so we can identify the problem and find the right solution!

Why You Want To Fix Your Smile For The Holidays

We won’t focus on this, but it’s definitely worth mentioning. As we said, ignoring dental problems will make them worse and could, ultimately, lead to tooth loss and a variety of serious health issues. That alone is reason enough to fix dental problems as soon as possible.

But oddly enough, our health isn’t always the most effective motivator to get to the dentist office for help. So let’s look at other, perhaps less obvious, reasons to fix your smile for the holidays!

Eat Delicious Food With Comfort And Ease

If you have a cavity, infection, or a crack in your tooth, there’s a strong likelihood you’re probably in some kind of pain. If not, perhaps you’re experiencing discomfort or even the simple annoyance of having to chew on one side just to avoid putting pressure on the damaged tooth.

The point is, that pain and discomfort is going to inevitably influence your dietary decisions. Sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner is definitely not the time to restrict yourself! With the array of juicy, succulent meats, sweet and chunky fruit salad, and crunchy vegetables, you’ll want teeth that work comfortably.

Thanksgiving dinner is a really good reason to fix your dental problems!

Smile For Pictures With Confidence

This particular holiday is one of those rare opportunities we get each year to visit with family and friends that we don’t get to see very often. What that means is that there are going to be all kinds of memory capturing and sharing with photos and videos.

In the age of social media, there’s an immediate consequence to those images. But beyond that, these are memories you’re going to want to look back on without feeling embarrassed about your damaged smile and the regret that comes with not fixing it before the holidays.
