With the holiday season upon us, it can be very easy to neglect our oral health when faced with all those yummy treats. Sweets seem to appear out of nowhere, plus with all of the gift-wrapping and card-writing, there’s not much time to devote to your family’s health and well-being. Remember, dental hygiene in Studio City should be a priority.
Kids and adults alike can heed these tips from the American Dental Association to keep their teeth healthy throughout the busy holiday season.
Routine is essential to ensuring a healthy mouth. It’s best to brush twice a day, and floss at least once a day, preferably before going to bed at night. Remember this: brush twice a day for two minutes each time. Use a fluoride toothpaste featuring the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
The occasional treat is fine, but if you want to avoid cavities, choose the carrots over the cookies. Rather than reach for that second candy cane, try a healthy snack such as peanut butter on celery, carrots dipped in low-fat ranch dressing or a cut up apple.
The last thing you probably have time for during the holidays is a visit to the dentist, but keep those scheduled visits and make the time. Whether you are due for a teeth cleaning or need some work done, don’t neglect visiting your dentist in December.
Drink Plenty of Water
You need lots of energy for holiday activities and you can’t afford to be sick. Drinking plenty of water will help keep you healthy, plus it will keep your teeth strong and healthy, especially if you drink water with fluoride in it. It can be tempting at holiday parties, but stay away from sodas, sports drinks and juices containing a lot of sugar. Water is always the best choice.
Whether you’re playing basketball, hockey or some other sport this winter season, wear a mouth guard to protect your pearly whites.
