7 Ways to Keep Your Holiday Smile Safe

You may enjoy seasonal treats while maintaining a cavity-free face for holiday photos. These suggestions will help you keep your teeth healthy over the holidays.

  1. Maintain Your Twice-Daily Routine

Even though your schedule is hectic over the holidays, brushing and cleaning your teeth at least twice a day is essential. This is especially important if you intend to enjoy some of the delicious holiday goodies. Brushing your teeth to remove sugar (with or without toothpaste) will go a long way.

  1. If you’re going to eat candy, don’t go overboard.

This endless banquet of sweets may cause problems on your teeth, and it’s the most amazing time of year for candy canes, popcorn balls, and cookies. You don’t have to skip Holiday goodies, though. “Eat one dessert and then brush your teeth,”   “You’ll treat your teeth to very little sugar [with such a simple treat] than if you nibble frequently, lowering your risk of tooth decays.”

Extra tip: With the most up-to-date cosmetic dental procedures, you may have the beautiful, healthy smile you’ve always wanted. Our cosmetic dentistry Modesto services give remarkable results in a fraction of the time, from tooth-colored fillings to teeth whitening. Turn to Family Dentistry in Modesto for a beautiful, revitalized smile crafted by a compassionate, professional cosmetic dentist.

  1. Now is the time to schedule your post-holiday checkup and cleaning.

You know you’re going to be busy because this isn’t your first holiday season. You are probably also aware that, despite your best efforts and easel notes, you’ll forget all seven of these suggestions at some point. It’s just a fact of life. The good news is that your post-holiday cleaning and check-up can be scheduled right now. So, once the holidays are over, you can ensure that your teeth and gums are in good shape for the New Year.

     4. Drink a lot of water every day

Water has numerous advantages, particularly over the holidays when you are likely to be out and about more than usual. Water has the advantage of being able to clear away newly created bacteria with each sip. Furthermore, water can help with breath freshening, digestion, and excretion. Water also has the added benefit of filling you up so you don’t overindulge in the limitless threats.

Extra Tip: Bring a reusable bottle in the car with you at all times and refill it whenever possible.

  1. Use a nutcracker to crack the nuts.

Every winter season, a variety of nuts are consumed as a traditional Holiday delicacy. While walnuts, almonds, pecans, and chestnuts offer a healthier alternative to sweet snacks, shelling them should not put your teeth to the test. To avoid an emergency trip to the dentist, use the proper nutcrackers.

  1. Appointments should be respected.

Consider your 6-month checkup a reward of good dental health and a Holiday gift to yourself if it falls during the holidays.

  1. Drinks the beverages, should be avoided.

This is true in every season. With the busy schedules and cooler temperatures of the Holiday season, the consumption of hot beverages such as cider, hot cocoa, eggnog, and gourmet coffees naturally rises. However, these delectable beverages may be detrimental to your dental health.

If you follow these seven suggestions, your grin will be bright and cheerful throughout the holiday season. Your holiday pictures and selfie with family and friends will look better than ever, and your oral health will be in excellent shape as the New Year approaches.
