The holidays are filled with sugarplum fairies, candy canes, chocolate Santas, and, as a result, cavities. During this season, you can protect your teeth from the damaging effects of sugary and other acidic treats by following this simple advice from Dr. Leslie Johnson your Fort Collins Dentist.
Eating sweets this time of year is inevitable. Besides, you should get to enjoy those special treats that people make only once a year. However, there are a few important ways you can protect your teeth, even as you indulge. Take your toothbrush with you, and take the time to brush after the big holiday shindig at work. It is also a good idea to include cheeses, nuts, meats, and other non-acidic foods to help cancel out all of the acid eating at your teeth. Lastly, try eating sweets in a group instead of grazing. This will protect your teeth from long-term exposure.
