THE SMILE THEY DESERVE!

Keeping a Healthy Smile During the Holidays

Published on November 26th, 2019

It’s no secret that it’s difficult to stay healthy and active during the holidays. From holiday parties with friends to family gatherings, it seems as though there’s no shortage of sugary drinks and cookies to go around. Luckily, if you’re looking for some tips to keep your mouth healthy this holiday season, here are a few easy tips to follow from your South Loop dentist.

Have a Routine

You probably have a dental routine all year round, and the holiday season should have no effect on it! If you brush your teeth two times a day and floss at least once, be sure to keep these habits. With all of the holiday eating and drinking, keeping up with your dental hygiene is more important than ever.

Drink Water

During the holidays, it’s certainly easy to forget about drinking water. With cold weather and constant social gatherings, it’s much more appealing to reach for hot cocoa or a fruity, sugary drink. As much as you can, avoid drinking only sugary drinks and set a goal for the amount of water you should drink every day. Not only will water be good for your whole body, but it’s a great way to produce saliva and push trapped particles out from between your teeth.

Don’t Forget the Dentist!

While the holidays are a busy time, they’re also a great time to visit the dentist as you might be home and have a few days off of work or school. If you are due for teeth cleaning or need work done, don’t forget to visit your South Loop dentist this December!
