The holidays can be a very tough time to maintain your dental health. There is usually a lot of food, sweets, and deserts being made and served. Here are some tips you can use to help keep your dental health during the holidays.
Avoid overdoing it with candy
It is very easy to eat more candy then we should during the holiday season. Especially with all the sweets that are cooked from pies, cookies, and ice cream. You should make an effort to regulate the number of sweets that you partake of. Everything in moderation.
Make sure if you choose to eat nuts you use a nutcracker. All too many people think they can pop them in their mouth and crack them with their teeth. But that is a huge mistake. One little misstep and it can cause you a very painful trip to see the dentist, or even worse you will have to wait to see a dentist until they are open.
Keep your dental routine
Keeping a routine can be hard just by itself, without it already being a stressful and busy time during the holidays. The key to maintaining your dental health is to make sure you stick to your teeth brushing routine. Also, do not forget to floss too.
A lot of people travel during the holidays which can throw a wrench into our dental health. Many times we can easily forget the less important things such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, and flossing.
If you follow this easy tips, you will be able to keep your dental health during the holiday season. As always if you have any specific dental questions feel free to reach out. We can be contacted here on our Contact page.
