5 Best Holiday Dental Tips

December 5, 2022

The holiday season is upon us. Your Henderson dentist wishes a very happy holiday season. We wish all of our awesome patients a happy holiday season, regardless of whether they celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Yule or Festivus.

In the midst of all the holiday festivities, it can be difficult to maintain your oral health. Keep your smile bright and healthy during the busy holiday season with these dental tips.

1. Cut Down On The Candy
Give your kids an advent calendar filled with toys instead of candy. This allows you to play with your children instead of worrying about cavities!

2. Floss Every Day
The importance of flossing cannot be overstated. Combined with brushing, this is the best way to clean your teeth. When a child has two teeth that touch, he or she should start flossing. After your last meal, we recommend flossing in the evening.

3. Drink Tons Of Water
During the winter months, holiday coffee drinks, apple cider, and hot chocolate are popular, but be sure to drink water too! For healthy, balanced oral health, water is essential for cleansing food and debris from teeth and promoting saliva production.

4. Offer Healthy Snacks
Stick to healthy snacks during the holidays to avoid cavities. Choose healthy snacks for your child from these four categories: fruit, vegetables, protein, and dairy.

5. Your Teeth Are Not Tools
There are tons of things you might be tempted to break open or cut with your teeth during the holidays, including packages to open and tape to apply to gifts. Don’t do it! Chips and breaks in your teeth happen when you use them as tools.

Densley Dental wishes you a holiday season filled with family, fun, and smiles. Give yourself the gift of a beautiful, healthy smile this year. If you are interested in veneers, dental implants, Invisalign in Henderson, or just need a checkup, we're here for you.
