Who doesn’t love the holidays? They’re a time to take a break from your regular routine and spend time with friends and family.
If you’re not careful, though, holiday celebrations can take a toll on your oral health. They frequently involve delicious food, drinks, and sweets that can put you at risk for decay and other issues.
As you navigate the holiday dessert tables, choose something special that you don’t usually see during the rest of the year. This will help you to stay satisfied without overdoing the sugary stuff. Also, it’s beneficial to have a glass of water with your dessert so you can take a drink after you finish and rinse some of the sugars from your teeth to safeguard your enamel.
Steer clear of hard candy that stays in your mouth for a long time, and be careful of extra-sticky candy that binds to your teeth. (Especially if you have a dental bridge, veneers, or braces!)
Don’t miss your dental health routine when your schedule is busier than normal. Regardless of the season, it’s important to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once per day (ideally, at night before going to bed).
