The holidays bring a lot of things with them. They tend to come with cooler weather, friends and relatives you haven’t seen in a while, parties, good food, gifts, and even stress! It’s that final detail that can most certainly end up wreaking havoc on your oral health and your dental care. So, how to manage this detail throughout the holidays? We have some helpful ideas!
#1: Don’t Stress Your Teeth
You’re going to want to be careful during the holidays, so you don’t accidentally harm your teeth. But how, you might wonder? Well, consider the simple ways to protect your teeth and you will be doing just fine with your oral health and your dental care:
- Keep brushing and flossing like always
- Keep seeing us for your visits (if you need your checkup and cleaning or a restorative treatment)
- Remember that if you eat more sugar than usual, it’s time to get serious about rinsing your smile and brushing after snacks
#2: Don’t Stress Your Jaws
Do you tend to internalize your stress? If you do, remember that this can harm your teeth and jaws. Remember to relax and to give yourself a break when you need it. Otherwise, oral health problems like bruxism and TMJ disorder may become a problem for you.
#3: Don’t Stress Your Care
What do you need? Do you feel like you’re having trouble with the thought of staying on track over the holidays with your dental hygiene? Head in and ask us questions during a visit! Do you think you should have scheduled your filling by now and you’re worried and stressed about your tooth? Come in for your restorative treatment! Don’t let your care requirements stress you out. Take care of them by letting us help.
