Family Day, a statutory holiday in Canada, is observed on the third Monday of February in Alberta. Alberta was actually the very first province to celebrate Family Day, which was instituted as a day for Albertans to give some thought to the importance of family and spend time with their loves ones.
On top of taking some time for your family this coming Family Day, you should also aim to use the holiday to remind yourself of the importance of family dental care. Even if everyone in your family is an astute tooth brusher and committed tooth flosser, personal oral hygiene needs to be coupled with professional dental care in order to maximize oral health.
Canada as a whole and Alberta in particular offer some of the best family dental care in the world. There is no reason why you and your family shouldn't take advantage of our fantastic dental care system and go for a checkup together at an Edmonton dental clinic such as Azarko Dental.
Just like regular medical checkups, professional, quality dental care is important at every stage of life. Babies should start seeing a dentist about the time that they turn one-year-old, and seniors can maintain good oral health by paying regular visits to their family dentist as well. Dental checkups are important for all the ages in between in order to keep teeth clean and prevent and treat issues such as cavities and gum disease.
Your family's oral health and overall health are closely connected. Issues such as infections, stroke, heart attack, Alzheimer's, and complications during pregnancy have all shown to be linked, in part, to gum inflammation. So, on top of helping to prevent and treat oral health issues, regular dental care can help prevent and treat other health problems as well.
Having a good Edmonton family dentist allows every member of your family to receive exactly the kind of dental care that they need. Family dentists also offer the convenience of booking everyone's appointments all at once.
So, why not focus on family this Family Day by having everyone visit the Edmonton family dentists at Azarko Dental for a dental examination and cleaning? Or, if you've already got plans, you can instead book an appointment with Azarko Dental for a day that works for everyone.
