Happy Holiday Smiles
December 21, 2022
The holiday season is finally here! This special time of the year is all about the season's magic, time with loved ones, and lots of delicious food. That said, before you dig into your favorite Christmas treats, here's a few tips so you can enjoy the holidays without compromising your smile!
Enjoy the sweets, then Brush and Floss – We all know that sugar isn't super great for your teeth. Residue from sugary temptations like soft drinks or hard, sticky, and chewy candy can remain long after eating. After indulging, be sure to brush and floss soon to protect your healthy smile.
Don't Misuse Your Teeth – Snipping clothing tags, opening packages, and cracking nuts aren't jobs your teeth were designed to do. If something goes wrong, damaging your teeth could be a painful and costly mistake. Be sure to use the appropriate tools for these tasks.
Drink Plenty of Water – Drinking enough water is not only great for your skin and digestion, it also plays an essential role in oral health. Water aids in washing away bacteria that accumulates on your teeth. Keeping a bottle of water handy can help keep your teeth and gums healthier during the holidays.
Don't Forget Your Check-ups – If it's been more than six months, or you don't currently have your bi-annual dental check-up scheduled, be sure to call Spaulding Dental Co. today to book an appointment. Your dental health is important to us; give us a call today!
