Start The New Year Right!

It is now the new year and many people and families hold themselves accountable for new year resolutions. Many may be going to the gym more often, starting a strict diet, but one resolution that we here at Fluellen Roberts Family Dentistry think is just as important is your dental health! What is yours? Our dentists Dr. Roberts and Dr. Fluellen believe that making your dental health a priority this year will help increase your health overall. We know that scheduling an appointment every six months can be hard to do with busy lives, but getting it on the books with once phone call is our job. Our front office staff is able to schedule your family out throughout the whole year!

Also, we encourage families to come to appointments together to avoid multiple trips back and forth. Showing a good example for your children by being excited for the dentist will, in turn, make them excited as well! Patient comfort is our utmost priority so our staff will go out of its way to ensure that you and your family are well taken care of.

Whether you are seeing Dr. Roberts or Dr. Fluellen, they will give you a thorough exam and cleaning to ensure a healthy mouth all year round. During your appointment, please feel free to ask them any questions you may have about taking care of your teeth this new year. They will recommend toothbrushes, toothpaste, and even a great flossing routine.

This new year bring happiness and goals, and we hope that one of your goals is to keep up with your dental exams and maintain a healthy mouth! Our office is open Monday through Thursday and is always accepting new patients.

Holiday Dental Care

The holidays are in full swing, and that means food, food, and even more food! This time of year you are surrounded by cookies, treats, and an abundance of holiday foods. While all you may want to do is try a piece of everything, you and your children must also think about your dental health. Here at Fluellen Roberts Family Dentistry, we want to provide as much information as possible to keep those teeth shiny white. If you will be eating holiday treats, make sure to brush your teeth and flush very soon afterward. There is a great amount of sugar in these types of treats and if that sugar sits in your mouth it can cause decay which ultimately leads to cavities.

Next, mulled wine is a popular drink during the holiday season. Who doesn’t love a glass of spiced hot wine? While this is a very tasty holiday special, you must remember what it can do to your teeth. Wine stains teeth very easily especially if you are drinking it without a straw. You may have experienced this in the past. But, there are ways to avoid this. Try to use a straw is there is one accessible, or if there is not then brush your teeth very shortly after drinking the wine. Another tip to avoid mulled wine staining your teeth is to drink a sip of water in between each drink. These will help break up the wine on your teeth and avoid the unfortunate stains!

Lastly, if you have not already then be sure to make your end of year appointment with Dr. Fluellen or Dr. Roberts. We know how important dental benefits are, and we would hate to see them go to waste! All dental benefits expire at the end of the year, so call our front office staff today at 972-231-8241 to get you and your family a spot secured!

We wish you a happy holiday season from everyone here at Fluellen Roberts Family Dentistry!
