Ways To Keep Your Teeth Healthy This Holiday Season
This holiday season be kind to your teeth and follow these tips to staying on track with your oral health care.
Avoid Eating Too Many Sweets
Eating a lot of sugar can increase the risk of tooth decay and cavities to your teeth. When you consume food or drinks with sugars in them the bacteria in plaque produces acids in your mouth that will attack the enamel of your teeth.
Instead of opting for multiple sweets choose one or two to eat and then brush your teeth afterwards. This will decrease the likelihood of developing tooth decay and cavities.
Keep a Routine
Whether it be to brush your teeth first thing in the morning and last thing before you go to bed make a routine of your oral health care.
The ADA recommends you brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes and make sure to floss! This will help you maintain optimal oral health.
Drinking water can help promote tooth density and health with the added fluoride found in toothpaste.
Protect Your Teeth
If you plan on playing games and sports protect your teeth with a mouth guard.
