Holiday Season and Dental Hygiene

Posted on Dec 10, 2014 in News | 0 comments

Holidays are here…  popcorn, cookies, blintzes, eggnog, candy canes, and all the good stuff.

All these taste great but are not good for your teeth. Most of the treats are high in fat and sugar content. That doesn’t mean you should not enjoy these treats. Eat them in moderation. Sip water all day long to get rid of the food particles from your teeth and to wash off the sugary stuff from your teeth.  Try cheese as a snack – it protects your teeth from the acid that causes cavities. Chew some sugarless gum to increase salivation and get rid of some of the food particles. Eat fresh fruits & vegetables and nuts to increase your immunity.

And of course, don’t forget your oral hygiene routine with brushing, flossing and mouthwash.
