Keeping your teeth happy and healthy during the Christmas season

Christmas is almost here! And with it, comes the excess. There’s something you should never forget, not even in Christmas: your oral health habits. With all your family lunches and the company dinners, it’s easy to ignore your oral health.

To ensure your teeth get the best present of all time this Christmas follow these simple tips for keeping your teeth happy and healthy.

1. Always eat sugar free gum or brush your teeth after sugar/citrus
2. Brush and floss your teeth twice a day
3. Substitute hard foods for softer foods eg hard bread rolls to soft rolls so your teeth are not strained
4. Limit your sugar and citrus intake
5. Rinse your mouth out with a fluoridated mouthwash


Sweet and sugary food and drinks activate the naturally-occurring bacteria that live in our mouths. These bacteria feed off the sugar and produce the acids that harm teeth.
Instead of weighing down the Christmas table with cookies, candy and other Christmas favorites, balance it out by providing alternatives. Make sure there’s a veggie tray with crunchy carrots, celery and broccoli. The natural crunch can help clean teeth in between sugar cookies.


Don’t let the holidays rule your mouth or your health. By making solid choices to live a healthy, more active lifestyle then your mouth, and your body, will thank you when the summer time rolls around.
