Keeping Your Teeth Healthy During the Holidays

Oral Health for the Holidays

The holiday season can be a difficult time for your teeth. You are surrounded by sweets and drinks on what seems like a constant basis and it can wreak havoc on your teeth.

During the holiday season it is common to indulge in cookies, candy, and other sweet treats. These treats leave a lot of sugar on your teeth that turn into enamel-wearing acid when it is exposed to bacteria. Here are a few easy ways to avoid cavities during this sweet holiday season.

Sweets in Moderation

We know it is hard to stop snacking once you start, but try to limit your candy consumption. Try to reach for sugar free candy as well to help protect your teeth. Also it is better for your teeth to eat chocolate then chewy, sticky candies that will get trapped in between teeth.

Red or White Wine?

Wine is very acidic which can harm your teeth. During the holidays reach for red instead of white. While red wine is known for causing stains, it is less acidic than white wine. White wine is more harmful to your teeth in the long run so try drinking red instead and pair it with foods high in calcium and phosphorus like cheese, poultry, and nuts.

Make sure to keep up with your brushing and flossing routine, and try rinsing your mouth after eating sugary foods or drinking sweet beverages.

Make sure to schedule an appointment in January or February to get a jumpstart on your oral health in the new year!
