Holiday Dental Tips

It’s very easy to get sidetracked when it comes to dental health, especially during the holidays. With various holidays just around the corner, we think it’s important that you take care of your teeth the right way so that there are no consequences once the holidays are over. So, here are some holiday dental tips to maintain that beautiful smile of yours.

Sweet Tooth

Try avoiding candy during the holidays, especially the sticky kind that can get in between your teeth. If you really can’t resist the holiday dessert, make sure you thoroughly brush your teeth afterward.

Nutcracker

Instead of opening nuts with your teeth, make sure you open them with a nutcracker. This way you’ll avoid breaking a tooth or hurting your gums.

Brushing Routine

Even though holidays can be hectic, don’t lose your head amidst the chaos. Try to keep your brushing and flossing routine in check, by carrying a toothbrush and mini toothpaste with you at all times, so that you can brush in between meals.

Visit Your Dentist

Make sure you visit your dentist. Consider your 6-month check-up as a gift of health to yourself. Don’t neglect your health amidst the chaos of holidays. The post-holiday period is exactly the time to be diligent when it comes to your dental health.

Drink a Lot of Water

Avoid drinking carbonated and sugary drinks, instead opt for water. You are going to need enough hydration to partake in holiday activities and all the running around.

Healthy Options

You don’t necessarily have to completely avoid offering your guests sweets and desserts, but make sure you provide some healthier options. This way you have actually covered all your bases. Some people will be more inclined to opt for a healthier alternative if it is presented to them. Some just have a certain nutrition regime.
