Caring for Your Smile This Holiday Season

Posted .

Holiday sweets and treats are surrounding us filling the air with delicious smells during this winter and holiday season. With so much food within our grasp, it’s easy to get carried away and let tooth decay set in. That is why our team is here to give you tips, so you can keep your mouth clean and fresh all season long. These tips include:

• Brush your teeth twice a day
• Flossing daily
• Use effective Mouthwash
• Visit your dentist regularly for a cleaning
• Replace your toothbrush regularly

Chewing sugar-free gum is another excellent way to ward off cavities this season. Chewing gum can increase the saliva in your mouth and aid in cleaning and washing your teeth. This is an excellent alternative to snacks and gum with sugar. Throughout your day, make quick bathroom visits and brush and floss your teeth as often as possible. If you are going to be eating more in the day, then it makes sense to brush and clean your teeth more throughout the day if you can.

If you have questions about how to prevent cavities please contact your dentist. Your dentist can address any questions or concerns you have pertaining to your oral health. So, call us today at 248-628-2540 and schedule your next appointment. Let us help your smile stay clean and bright this holiday season.
