Imbibe and thrive this holiday season! May your smile be merry and bright. Cheers from Rolling Hills Dental! Check out our tips on how to keep your smile in good health while you celebrate.
We all want to reach for the delectable options during the holidays, but there’s often a vegetable choice that can save you the heartburn, and keep your mouth in better shape. Not only are veggies a great go-to for keeping your holiday diet on track, they help keep your teeth clean. Crisp raw vegetables like carrots cauliflower, cucumbers, broccoli, and celery all help clean plaque from teeth and freshen breath.
Brush, floss, repeat
There is nothing more annoying than picking turkey out of your teeth, and nothing more embarrassing than the leafy greens your teeth snagged that mock your pearly white smile. Flossing helps you remove excess debris that gets caught between your teeth that can cause plaque build-up and gum disease. Carry a travel toothbrush for a quick clean-up. Spry Xylitol gum is a great way to keep your teeth clean after a big meal. Xylitol is a natural ingredient that inhibits bacteria from sticking to your teeth. If bacteria can’t stick, they can’t colonize and damage your oral health.
Chronic dehydration can increase your urge to graze, even after the meal has commenced… Staying hydrated has another big benefit. Between each bite, course, and snack, a healthy dose of water will wash away debris build-up known to cause plaque. Tap water is also known to contain fluoride which will help in aiding the fight against all of the acidic ingredients we consume during the holidays.
pH, keep it basic
For all of those science buffs, you know what we mean. A lot of those tasty holiday treats are packed with sugar, acids, and are leaders in negative oral health impact. Some common culprits include cranberry sauce, pies, and that big glass holiday wine. If you find it hard to avoid your favorite dishes, make sure you swish and floss after your meal.
Post holiday dental appointment
When all is said and done, the holidays can wreak havoc on your waistline and beautiful smile. If your holiday habits are leaving your teeth in need of a cleaning, give us a call at (865) 983-4444, and we’ll be happy to get your smile in shape to greet all your New Years resolutions!
