Happy Holidays – and Happy Teeth

Posted .

The holiday season brings with it a ton of great food, but that food isn’t always the best for your oral health. That’s why, if you want to have the happiest holidays possible, you’ll also focus on making sure your teeth are happy during this season as well.

Let’s look at some simple oral hygiene tips to help you through this time of great food and far too many parties to count.

Watch your sugar intake

One of the leading causes of tooth problems, especially seen by our team here at Dental Designs of Bountiful in Bountiful, Utah, is due to far too much exposure to sugar. Eating all the Christmastime sweets exposes your teeth to more sugar than normal. This causes more plaque to build up than usual, which means your oral health routine needs to be stricter than usual.

Don’t forget your supplies while traveling

It’s easy to just buy travel toothpaste and brushes at the airport, or at the grocery store back home, if you’re traveling for Christmas. However, you should always take your oral health supplies with you because these are the ones with which you’re most familiar and able to effectively clean your teeth.
