The holiday season is a very special time for many. Getting a chance to spend much needed quality time with friends and family is something that you may not get to do as often as you’d like, so you make sure to cherish those special moments. It is also a time where delicious eats and treats are abundant.
There’s nothing wrong with indulging in some holiday treats; you’ve worked hard and you deserve it! It is important to remember however that the holidays only last for a short time and that your teeth and gums will last a lot longer than that, as long as you take good care of them. If you do happen to over indulge in the sweets this holiday, fret not. A combination of brushing, flossing, rinsing and the consumption of water will help keep your teeth, tongue and gums clean and keep sugar from lingering around in between your teeth and causing potential issues.
After the holiday season wraps up and a new year begins, make sure you contact your Aylmer dentist to schedule an appointment to make sure your teeth and gums are their brightest, whitest and healthiest for 2016.
