Avoid cavities during the holidays!
This time of year is great to enjoy all the special holiday foods and treats but a few tips can help to prevent a dental emergency or increased risk for cavities. Moderation is key and of course, always brush/floss or at least rinse/chew sugar-free gum when you can.
“holiday foods and drinks that can damage teeth, including items such as bourbon and coffee, which can dry out the mouth; citrus fruits, which are acidic and can erode enamel; candy canes, which have a high sugar content and can also trigger a dental emergency, such as a broken or chipped tooth; and sticky candy and dried fruit, which can stay on the teeth longer than other types of candy and food”
