Christmas, New Years, and other holiday celebrations are now at hand, and if your New Year’s resolution is to cut down on your alcohol intake, we recommend starting now. Drinking excessive amounts of beer, wine, or hard liquor has lots of negative side effects, including liver problems and other serious illnesses. Even if these weren’t a factor in your decision, simple hangovers can be unpleasant enough.
However your Christian dentist, Fort Collins has other reasons he wants to you grab a big glass of water instead of reaching for another martini. Liquor can cause excessive gum recession and exacerbate other problems, such as periodontal disease. Many alcoholic beverages also contain high amounts of sugar, which can cause cavities. It has also been shown that those who drink more often brush their teeth less, and experience more dental hygiene problems as a result. So please, put down the beer can, and start taking care of your teeth.
