Well it’s that time of year, Holiday season. With Thanksgiving in America, and a short time later Christmas, the amount of feasting that is about to take place will have a bit of an impact on the regular North American. And while a high percentage are worried about their waistlines, maybe it’s time to think about your teeth through this season!
Now don’t get us wrong, we want you to enjoy this time to the fullest! But with a few added precautions you can not only take care of your teeth, but also your waistlines! #1 as always is be sure to not overindulge! Easier said than done when grandma’s pumpkin pie hits the table… But try brushing your teeth after you eat that one piece of pie, it might help you think twice about eating something else right away!
Eat LOTS of vegetables with the rest of your meal, Fill your plate with an assortment of colorful veggies, full of smile-friendly vitamins and minerals. Red and orange veggies are usually high in vitamin C (good for gums), while leafy green vegetables are good sources of calcium (for strong teeth). And these vegetables actually do help you fill up faster!
Finally be sure to drink a lot of water! This helps all of our bodies systems, and when drinking wine or other acidic beverages and foods, water will help rinse the mouth and restore a proper environment!
Here at Urban Smiles we want all of you to enjoy this time with family and friends, we also want to see that beautiful smile again, so be sure to book an appointment after, or even during this season, to make sure that smile stays bright!!!
