With the Holidays among us, we worry so much about the impact it can have on our body, we often forget the impact it can have on our teeth. A few factors contribute to this. First, people tend to indulge in sweets more often than they do the remainder of the year. Second, people tend to snack more throughout the day, and without a break, your saliva doesn’t have a chance to clean the bacteria off your teeth. Third, people travel more and tend to get out of their regular routine and can often forget to grab a toothbrush or forget to brush normally.
But don’t stress! We have tips for protecting your teeth while also enjoying the Holiday!
Avoid Foods That Stain Your Teeth
Think red wine, coffee, and soda. Try to avoid these as much as possible.
Try To Avoid Snacking All Day Long
Keeping eating to mealtimes is ultimately the best, but try hard to not snack too much throughout the day.
Drink Plenty Of Water
Drink plenty of water so the food you’re eating doesn’t stick and stay on your teeth for long.
Brush, Floss, and Rinse
Try hard to remember your toothbrush and mouthwash, but in case you forget always keep a small container of floss with you. That way you can clean in between your teeth after snacking.
Limit The Amount Of Sugar
It can mean making some tough decisions. But choose where you really want to indulge and try to pass on the other sugary foods.

We offer both in-office and at-home tooth whitening options. Our in-office option takes about 2 hours and offers immediate results. Our at-home whitening system is often just as effective and can be done at home. Dramatic results with our at-home whitening system are often seen in as little as 10 days. Time, diet, and certain oral habits may stain and discolor your teeth leaving you feeling embarrassed of your smile.
Here are some of the benefits of brightening up that smile:
-Self Confidence- The better we feel about ourselves in front of the mirror, the more confidence we portray to others. when we venture out into the world. When you look good, you feel good.
-Healthy Appearance- A person’s smile has a big influence on how we are perceived on a first impression. It also shows others you take pride in your appearance. When we have brighter youthful looking smile it conveys health to others.
