Towards the end of the year, everyone’s lives become a little more hectic than usual. Everyone is taking their well-earned leaves from work, ordering and buying gifts for the upcoming holidays. No matter what religion you follow, no matter where you live in the world, from November to early January, people become busier, have more things on their minds, and so, they postpone whatever they can.
Including dental check-ups, even though we urge everyone at the Hungarian Dental Clinic in Letterkenny, you should always prioritize your dental health.
The last couple of weeks of the year are not only busy because everyone is focusing on getting gifts in time, or because there are more people in the shops, but also because most workplaces close for a couple of days, if not more. As a consequence, we have to make sure to get to the bottom of our to-do lists faster than what we are used to, while also cleaning the apartment, inviting family over, or going to visit family or friends.
So when we get up in the morning with an aching or chipped tooth or our fillings fall out, most of us tend to decide whether it hurts enough to rush to the dentist’s clinic, or it can wait until the New Year.
All of our dental specialists would agree: Go get your teeth fixed before the holidays.
‘Tis the season to be merry, we know, and we know that a visit at the dentist is not necessarily a joyful occasion. A lot of people are afraid to go to the dentist, but as we have explained earlier, at the Hungarian Dental Clinic, we create a friendly, comfortable environment, in which you may feel absolutely in charge of the events, so that fear is not a reason for you to postpone your visit. Make sure ‘tis is also the season to have healthy teeth.
You might be overloaded with work, and you might be stressed about where to get your loved ones a gift they would truly appreciate. But do not forget that doctors and dentists also celebrate the holidays. They also have a tight schedule, and they also need to hunt for gifts. So if you have a toothache, make sure you reach out and make an appointment at our Dental Clinic in Letterkenny as soon as possible, so that you can get your treatment in time. During the holidays you might not find an emergency dental clinic in your area, and you might have to wait a lot longer than you’d feel comfortable if you wait now. You can always book an appointment on our website, and you can also find information about different diseases, treatments, and symptoms if you want to know what you are looking for exactly. Our colleagues are more than happy to consult you on your symptoms and the best possible courses of treatment that you might need.
If you are still hesitant about making an appointment now or waiting for the holidays to be over, take into consideration the holidays themselves. Most families, when they meet, tend to have snacks, cakes, and biscuits, not to mention the alcohol, the sugary drinks, or the main dishes themselves. At Christmas, people tend to make a lot of food and a lot of sweets, even if they only celebrate with their close family.
If you have a chipped tooth, a starting tooth decay, or any other diseases, like gum disease, your teeth might get worse during the holidays. You will be eating and drinking a lot, so if it hurts now, it will probably hurt more – unless, of course, you get it treated.
There might be several reasons why you would want to postpone your dental visit. But do not forget that just like everybody else, dentists, even at the Hungarian Dental Clinic in Letterkenny, will also be out of office at the end of the year, and your pain might only get worse by the time you get an appointment in the new year. Think about all the pictures and pleasurable moments that could be ruined by a hurting tooth. Reach out now and book an appointment at the Hungarian Dental Clinic as soon as possible to make sure your teeth are in perfect shape for the holiday. Treatment now can save time later; or you might also say that a dental check-up in time, saves nine.
