Alaska’s Best Oral Surgeons Share Tips for Staying Healthy This Fall, Anchorage, Alaska

The team at Oral Surgery Associates of Alaska in Anchorage firmly believes that their patients are healthiest when they take an all-encompassing approach to wellness. While these oral surgeons specialize in maxillofacial procedures, they also want to share as many general wellness tips as possible with their community to help them stay healthy through the upcoming holiday season.

With winter just around the corner, there are some steps you should be taking to safeguard your health. Here are some tips from Alaska’s best oral surgeons to get you started:

  • oral surgeonFight The Flu: Flu season is nearly in full swing, so it’s the perfect time to get vaccinated if you haven’t done so already. Schedule an appointment with your general practitioner or check out local flu shot clinics to protect yourself against the virus.
  • Replace Batteries: A working smoke or carbon monoxide detector could save your family’s life in an emergency, but the tools are rendered useless if their batteries are dead. A good rule of thumb is to check or replace them when you turn back clocks in the fall (and when you set them ahead in the spring).
  • Schedule Appointments: Most patients find that they can maximize the benefits of their health care plans by having any necessary procedures done before the end of the year. If your college student is coming home for winter break and is in need of wisdom teeth removal, book the procedure as far in advance as possible. The end of the year can be a busy time, not only for oral surgery professionals, but for all types of medical offices. If you haven’t booked your appointments yet, do so soon.

To schedule an appointment with one of the gentle and experienced oral surgeons at Oral Surgery Associates of Alaska, call (907) 561-1430 today. To learn more about their additional procedures, visit the practice’s website.
