  1. Eat HEALTHY!

Holiday foods are not always healthy foods. The key is to find a balance between indulging enough to have fun but not forgo overall healthy choices. While eating on the run, you’re less likely to focus on what’s good for you and more likely to grab what’s convenient. Meal planning is recommended by replacing processed and fast foods–with whole foods.

Remember, what’s good for your body is good for your teeth and gums!

  1. Pass on the Popcorn Balls!

Chomping down on a single unpopped kernel of popcorn or hard candy, like toffee nuts, brittles and candy canes– can crack your teeth! They may be oh-so-irresistible but the potential  damage of your teeth and fillings isn’t worth the risk. Sticky candies like caramel and taffy have been known to pull out fillings and even loosen old bridges! If candy is a craving, stick to chocolate and brush soon afterwards.

  1. Win Your Battle Over “Bad Breath”

You’re likely eating more plaque-causing and spicy foods for the holidays… and you may be overdue for your cleaning. You’re only a breath away from being embarrassed by halitosis, which is also known as bad breath.

Your dental cleaning can help restore your close up confidence.

  1. Don’t Sour Your Smile!

Oral bacteria that feed off sugar can generate an acid pH comparable to that of battery acid! Sodas and other common holiday drinks bathe your teeth in a continuous layer of decay causing acid–which can be extremely corrosive to your teeth. South candies and pickled foods can have the same effect. If you’re going to consume acidic snacks, foods or drinks, do so during a mealtime.

Rinsing with water and chewing xylitol-containing gum can help!
