Tips for Holiday Dental Care
If you’re going to be enjoying all the great holiday events near Grosse Pointe & Shelby Township, you’ll want to make sure your smile stays white as fresh snow! We have some tips to keep your teeth and gums healthy through the holidays:
All Things in Moderation – Hot cocoa, juices and cookies are staples of holiday celebrations. Make sure not to overindulge on sugary foods or drinks! Those sugars will feed bacteria in your mouth, leading to cavities or gum disease.
Avoid Sticky Holiday Treats – Sticky candies or fruit cakes can leave hard-to-remove residue on your teeth. This residue will sit and cause your enamel to wear away all day.
Brush Before & After Events – The holidays are exciting, but that’s no excuse to skip out on basic dental care routines. Keep up with your daily brushing, twice a day for two minutes. Be sure to greet Christmas morning with a smile as bright as the star on your tree!
