If you didn’t already know, April is quite a month for oral health. While it’s the month of Easter and other exciting holidays, the month also recognizes some very important aspects of preventive care. Your Temecula dentist would like to provide you with the details, so you spend a bit of time reflecting on ways to keep your smile healthy, intact, and beautiful for many years to come.

April Is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

Your Temecula dentist reminds you that this is a time to recognize a disease few like to discuss but that affects tens of thousands of people on an annual basis. The good news is that with early detection, you can prevent the disease from advancing should any abnormalities begin to take place. How to do so? Come in for your dental checkup each six months, so we may provide you with a screening. Of course, also remember to see us the moment you notice anything unusual.

April Is Also National Facial Protection Month

Your Temecula dentist and the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) remind you this April that it is also National Facial Protection Month. Not really sure what this means? Well, imagine the extensive care you might need if you fall off a bicycle, if someone hits you in the mouth with a baseball bat on accident, etc. They aren’t nice things to think about but they can happen. By wearing a sports mouthguard every time you’re active (and making a helmet a priority when appropriate), you offer your smile immense protection.
