Don’t Let December Damage your Dental Bliss
Strong sweets can affect teeth for 20 minutes or more after consumption. Decay and gingivitis take advantage of weakened enamel due to sugar-induced acids in the mouth.

Tooth decay is accelerated dramatically by sweet drinks. Prevent the eroding effects of harmful acids on your teeth by rinsing after alcoholic and sweet beverages.

Create a portable, dental care packet with a toothbrush, toothpaste and floss. Don’t procrastinate on important dental work that might be minor in November but major in January.

Exercising to reduce stress is highly beneficial. By promoting heart health you will also promote dental health. Jaw clenching and teeth grinding can cause headaches, tooth chipping, and jaw pain. Discuss possible solutions with your dentist.

Consider giving fun dental products to children for a holiday gift, such as an entertaining toothbrush, or a fun flavoured toothpaste. Make an appointment for the family in early January, to start the New Year with a healthy dental tone.
