Hard to believe that 2014 is already winding down and soon the holidays will be here. Elite Smile Dentistry of Carmel wants to remind you to use your insurance benefits before they expire on Dec. 31. We are more than willing to help you understand these benefits and how they can help you maintain good oral health. You may think because you don’t have dental pain you don’t need to visit the dentist but nothing could be further from the truth. Heart Disease and Diabetes are both linked to poor oral health. Failure to get bi-annual checkups can cause periodontal disease as well. Remember just how you need an annual checkup from the doctor, your teeth need a checkup every 6 months. You have much more quality of life with good oral care, and with regular checkups, your teeth can be strong for your entire lifetime. Call our office at 317-846-3436.
