How to Keep Your Teeth Healthy During the Holidays

How to Keep Your Teeth Healthy During the Holidays

 

The Christmas Holidays are a time full of fun, food and family. With all of these distractions, our oral health routine can take a backseat. However, it’s just as important to take good care of your Dental health during the holidays as it is all year round. 

To ensure your best oral health this festive season, here are our Dentist-approved Dental care tips for a tooth-friendly Christmas.

What Causes Unhealthy Teeth During the Holidays?

 

The Christmas period can be a busy time of year, between events, visiting family or travelling, our healthy habits can slip. It’s common to neglect our Dental health during the holidays, however, this can lead to negative oral health impacts. 

The most common culprits of negative oral hygiene during Christmas are overindulging in sugary foods, neglecting our usual Dental care routine and not drinking enough water. By following the tips outlined in this article, you can prevent oral health damage and enjoy a healthy holiday!

Our Top Dental Health Tips for the Holiday Season

 

The Christmas period can involve consuming not-so-teeth-friendly foods and drinks. Luckily, there are a few simple Dental care tips to help you maintain good oral hygiene. Our top Dental care tips for Christmas are to:

  • Eat tooth-friendly foods 
  • Limit alcohol and coffee consumption
  • Rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash after indulgent meals
  • Avoid hard lollies such as candy canes
  • Drink lots of water 
  • Brush and floss twice a day
  • Book a Dental Check-Up and Clean for the New Year
  • Maintain your Dentist’s treatment advice such as wearing a retainer

 

By following these simple oral health tips, you can maintain a glowing, healthy smile this Christmas!

Best Food for Healthy Teeth and Gums

 

Certain foods can improve our oral health, while other foods can contribute to decay and cavities. We recommend incorporating tooth-friendly foods that are high in calcium, vitamins, fibre and protein into your Christmas celebrations. These are a few tooth-friendly foods:

  • Cheese and milk
  • Unsweetened yoghurt
  • Leafy greens
  • Fatty fish
  • Eggs
  • Nuts
  • Lean meat
  • Whole grains

 

Foods to avoid or consume in moderation for a healthy holiday smile are:

  • Hard lollies
  • Sugary foods
  • Processed foods
  • Sour lollies
  • Potato chips
  • Refined carbs

 

What Drinks Are Best for Your Teeth?

 

Beverages impact our oral health just as much as food does. Above all, you should be drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated and avoid a dry mouth. These are the drinks you should consume or avoid over Christmas.

Best drinks for your teeth:

  • Plenty of water
  • Unsweetened milk
  • Green tea
  • Vegetable juice

 

Drinks that are bad for your teeth:

  • Alcohol
  • Coffee
  • Soft drink
  • Energy drinks
  • Carbonated drinks

 

Book a New Year Check-Up and Clean Appointment

 

One of the best ways to maintain a healthy mouth is by visiting the Dentist for a Check-Up and Clean appointment once every six months. Regular cleaning of the teeth by professionals can help you keep your teeth healthy by removing the build-up of plaque and tartar.

Benefits of regular Dental Check-ups include:

  • Prevent cavities, which can be extremely painful and costly to treat
  • Prevent tooth loss, which can occur from poor oral hygiene and tooth decay
  • Keep your teeth bright and your breath fresh
  • Overall better general health
  • Save money by preventing costly Dental problems from occurring

 

If you’re due for a Check-Up and Clean, visit the friendly team at Brisbane Smiles in the New Year. You can book online 24/7 here.
