Caring For Your Teeth This Holiday Season

Table of Content

Santa is on his way and we intend to make certain that you’re on the nice list. At Vancouver Dental Spa, our favorite gift is the gift of excellent dental health. We’ve made a list, and checking it twice, to ensure your smile remains healthy over the holiday season and into the new year.

Here are our tips for maintaining a beaming smile into 2020:

Brush. While it may seem obvious, we see many patients skipping their daily brushes. Correctly brushing your teeth on a regular basis is the most reliable means to keep a healthy smile. Brush twice a day, up-and-down, back-and-forth, on both the front and back of your teeth. Don’t neglect to brush along your gum tissue lines. You might be on vacation but your smile is not.

Floss. Flossing is frequently seen as a hassle as well as is ignored. It does away with plaque as well as food in between your teeth where your toothbrush can not reach. Set up a consultation with your Vancouver Dental Spa professional so we can show you and your family the appropriate flossing method.

Use mouthwash. Gargling with fluoride can avoid dental caries and also tooth decay specifically when integrated with flossing as well as brushing on a regular basis. Review the ingredients of your mouthwash to guarantee it has the proper cleaning and also preventative ingredients, including fluoride, to keep your smile clean and fresh.

Say no to sugar. Desserts, sweets, pop, as well as power beverages, can be a staple around this time of year. Sugar boosts the chance of cavities. Ensure you as well as your family members are consuming a balanced diet. We know it can be hard not to indulge during the holiday season, but by paying attention to the sweets you eat, you can properly rinse or brush afterward to get the reward without the risk.

At your Downtown Vancouver Dentist, we know the holidays can be a hectic time. If you experience any dental issues or have any questions, we would love to hear from you. Give us a call.
