Who doesn’t love the holidays? They’re a time to take a break from your regular routine and spend time with friends and family. They usually involve parties, delicious food, and sweets. It’s important that Horseshoe Bay, Burnet, and Kingsland dental patients be careful that these happy times don’t take a toll on their oral health.
As you navigate the holiday dessert tables, try to choose something special that you don’t usually see during the rest of the year. This will help you to stay satisfied without overdoing the sugary stuff. Also, grab a glass of water with your dessert so you can take a drink after you finish and rinse some of the sugars from your teeth.
With the candy-heavy holidays, you also need to make smart choices for your teeth. Steer clear of hard candy that stays in your mouth for a long time, and be careful of extra-sticky candy that binds to your teeth. (Especially if you have a dental bridge, veneers, or braces!)
Don’t let your dental health routine be interrupted by the changes to your normal schedule. Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day and floss once per day.
