Ten Holiday Dental Health Tips

The holiday season is right around the corner, and the team at the Legend Court Dental Centre is here to help you keep your bright white teeth in the best shape during this fun season!

Tip #1 – Use a Bottle Opener

Don’t use your teeth to open a bottle, or crack open hard nuts – even though your teeth are strong, doing either of these runs the risk of breaking your pearly whites.

Tip #2 – Avoid the Chewy Stuff

Chewy treats stick to your teeth more then other foods, and this means they can get caught in teeth and irritate fillings.

Tip #3 – Skip the Pop

Pop and soda are acidic and sugary, and therefore are damaging to teeth – try replacing your favourite soda drink with a fizzy water instead, or use a straw to keep the acid and sugar out of your mouth.

Tip #4 – Have Seconds of the Turkey

Turkey is a staple food during the holidays, and it’s actually good for you! Turkey is loaded with¬† phosphorous and protein, and these help fight off tooth decay.

Tip #5 – Add Cheese to the Menu

The calcium found in cheeses is great for your teeth and for your jaw bones – just eat it in moderation, as it can be fatty.

Tip #6 – Eat Your Fruit and Veggies

This one is obvious, but regularly eating fruit and vegetables is a great way to get vitamins and minerals, both of which help keep your teeth healthy and strong. They also help to naturally clean your teeth between brushings!

Tip #7 – Cut the Snacks

Snacking increases the risk of teeth decay, so try to cut out excessive snacking during the holiday season.

Tip #8 – Moderation is Key

The holidays is a time where snacking and food is available in excess – practice moderation and keep yourself (and your teeth!) healthy.

Tip #9 РBrush Twice Daily 

Proper oral hygiene is essential – not just during the holidays, but all year round! Be sure to brush twice a year and keep up your flossing regime.
