Dental Tips to Maintain a Healthy Smile During the Holidays!

Our practice wants to wish you a Happy Holiday Season and remind you that during this fun and festive time of year, it is easy to get busy and forget about the simple things we do automatically any other time of year.   

Make sure that brushing your teeth is not one of these forgotten things.  In fact it is better to brush and floss more often during this time of hearty meals and excessive sweets.  Below are a few dental care tips to help you maintain a healthy smile during the holiday season:

Be mindful of the things you bite on – candy canes and caramel popcorn balls are wonderful treats that we see during the holiday season but can raise havoc on your teeth.  One wrong bite and a tooth can crack, causing you discomfort and pain.  Avoid biting on anything that is hard, no matter how tempting or delicious it may be.

Don’t forget to include your teeth on your gift list – Make sure to change your tooth brush every 3 months.  Why not give your teeth the gift of a new toothbrush during the holidays.  Electric toothbrushes are a great option to help you on your way to a happy smile!
Don't leave home without it. Whenever traveling to a friend's or family member's home for a meal, don't forget to pack a spare toothbrush, toothpaste, and roll of floss. Make sure to pack enough dental supplies should the meal extend into an overnight stay or even longer.
Happy Holidays!
