Do you want to spare the pain of dental issues this Christmas? Well, who wouldn’t? No one wants to suffer from toothaches and dental issues during the holidays. So, to help you keep your smile in pristine condition this Christmas, our Vital Dental team encourages you to do the following things:

Get a professional dental cleaning: Dental cleanings are vital for your oral health, especially during the holiday season. This treatment completely removes the plaque and tartar from your smile, which helps you prevent gum disease and tooth decay. The cleaning also involves a fluoride treatment, which can strengthen your tooth enamel and prevent tooth sensitivity and enamel erosion.

Keep up on oral hygiene: Make sure to participate in an oral hygiene routine each day. It’s best to brush for two minutes every morning and every night with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Before heading to bed each night, floss every crevice of your smile and remove the food particles and plaque that are stuck between your teeth. After you’re done brushing and flossing, don’t forget to rinse your mouth with a beneficial mouthwash.

Limit your Christmas treat consumption: Sugar can severely harm your smile, which is why we encourage you to limit your Christmas treat consumption. If you stay away from sugar as much as possible, there is a high chance you’ll have a strong and healthy smile.
