Caring For Your Oral Health Over The Holiday Season

We don’t know about you, but at Integrity Dental, we are thrilled that the holiday season has rolled around again. We know that many of our patients are busy planning their holiday events, get-togethers with friends and family, and celebrating traditions that may have been cancelled during the last holiday season. While we want you to enjoy this season, we also want to give you a few reminders of ways to ensure optimal oral health during holiday festivities. We would hate for our patients to experience dental decay or a dental emergency due to overindulging.

Healthy Foods for a Healthy Mouth

Summer is a time to enjoy plenty of delicious foods and drinks when you are on vacation, at a party or summer cookout, or simply enjoying some time at home. Even though foods and drinks might taste delicious, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are healthy for your teeth. In fact, many of the foods that many patients enjoy consuming are not the best for your oral health. Before summer comes to an end, we want to share some healthy foods that you can add to your diet that can help keep your teeth healthy and happy.

Tis the Season for a Healthy Smile

As Buddy the Elf in the Christmas movie Elf says, “I just like to smile. Smiling’s my favorite!” We love to smile too, and we want to make sure you remain smiling this holiday season. The holidays are a great time to see family and friends. It is easy to get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and forget to take proper care of your oral health. We want to share some tips to ensure that your smile remains shiny and bright.
