Christmas is a time to celebrate, and there are lots of yummy foods and drinks around. While you want to enjoy the holidays, it’s a good idea to think about your oral health a little, ensuring you start the New Year with a healthy smile.

Enjoy Sugar Responsibly

It’s unreasonable to expect you to avoid sugar entirely, but bear in mind some foods are worse than others. After eating something sweet, be sure to brush your teeth and to floss thoroughly.

Chomp on Cheese

If you love cheese, you’re in luck because cheese is great for teeth. Cheese helps to fight plaque bacteria and chewing it stimulates saliva flow, helping to normalise pH levels more quickly. It is also packed with calcium that helps to harden tooth enamel.

Stick to Your Normal Oral Care Routine

Ordinary schedules can go out of the window around Christmas time, but it’s important to take the time to brush and floss teeth regularly. It might be an effort to get kids to brush and floss but it’s worth it in the long term.

Your Teeth Aren’t Tools

We know you can’t wait to open your presents but resist the urge to use your teeth as tools. It’s very easy to crack or chip a tooth, and an emergency dental appointment is never a fun prospect, especially over Christmas.
