Dental Care During Festive Season

Season to enjoy and indulge in delicious treats, cakes, puddings, sweets and much more is upon us. While we are making the most of it, it is important to remember that these sweet treats could play havoc with your dental care.

We thought it was very timely to offer some tips that will come in handy for you and your loved ones through the season.

Whilst sweet, sugary treat and fizzy drinks can be very tempting during the season, keep a limit on these. Sugars tend to attach themselves to teeth and gums. Ensure to drink water in between to wash off the sugar. Chewing sugar-free chewing gums are a good idea to clean your teeth in between meals.

Keep brushing and flossing at least twice a day – first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Floss at least once a day.

Don’t use your teeth to open drink bottle caps, or crack nuts

Smiles are beautiful and we at Shine Dental don’t want you to lose yours. Don’t forget to look after your dental health over the festive season and book an appointment with us for a general dental checkup.

We wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
