Oral Tips For A Healthy Vacation Season
Posted on 2/6/2023 by Evan
Whether you use toothpaste or not, all it takes to get sugar off your teeth is a simple brushing. Your schedule might be crazy during the holidays, but you still have to brush and floss your teeth at least twice daily. This is especially important if you plan to eat some of the delicious holiday treats.
Have Fruit on Hand
There will always be sugary desserts everywhere you go; you cannot get away from them. Even if you only eat occasionally, you should always have a piece of organic fruit.
Every day, drink enough water.
Water is good for you in many ways, especially around the holidays when you are out more than ever. One of the best things about water is that every sip can wash away bacteria that has just formed. Also, water can make your breath smell better, help you digest food, and help you get rid of waste. Also, water can make you feel full, so you do not overeat the treats.
Eat more good fats
It is time to get over your fear of fat because healthy fats are essential for healthy teeth and even health in general. We suggest choosing fats that are good for you, like olive oil, avocados, and fatty fish like salmon. If you are unsure how to add healthy fats to your diet, you should talk to your dentist or dietitian.
