Have You Been Naughty or Nice to Your Teeth?

The holiday season is a time for giving. It’s that time of year when we give gifts and share meals and beverages with loved ones, family, friends, and coworkers. Yet the holiday season is also one of the most difficult times to stay healthy.

We are more prone to naughty than nice when it comes to our diet and lifestyle because of late-night dinners, drinks with co-workers, and plenty of parties.

As a reminder, here are some tips to keep your teeth healthy during the holiday season, despite all the temptations to forget about oral hygiene.

Keep Your Dental Appointment

While the holidays can be a busy time of year, you shouldn’t forget about your dental appointments. In fact, this month is a great time for you to get around to seeing the dentist. If you wait until January or later to schedule an appointment, there might not be any openings.

It’s no secret that many people put off seeing the dentist until it is absolutely necessary. Not a good idea. With the holiday season fast approaching, now would be a great time to visit a dentist, as you can fill their dental office with your holiday cheer!

Brush Your Teeth

Brushing your teeth is an essential step in maintaining good oral health. Brushing your teeth is a vital part of a healthy, balanced dental routine. This will reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Dental issues will be significantly reduced.

Plaque and food debris can be effectively removed by brushing twice a day for two minutes, reducing the risk of cavities and periodontal disease.

Quench Your Thirst With Water

The holiday cheer is in the air, but you need to be mindful of what you’re eating. When you drink soda, fruit juices, or sports energy drinks, you’re putting your teeth at risk.

Such sugar-rich drinks can cause tooth decay and acid erosion. Numerous dental studies have linked these drinks to an increase in cavities.

Stay safe and hydrated this holiday season by simply drinking water.

Prefer Carrots Over Cookies

It’s the holiday season, and we’re all looking forward to spending time with family and friends. If you’re like most people at holiday time and tempted to indulge a little too much in the sweet stuff, keep in mind there’s no need to reach for yet another candy cane. Just eat more carrots instead.
