It’s extremely important for people to take extra caution with their teeth and gums at this time of year.
With the amount of food and beverages consumed, people can see their oral health deteriorate quickly. The British Dental Health Foundation is making sure people are on notice about this situation.
When consuming sugary food and drinks, it’s important to keep teeth and gums in mind—just like the rest of the year. It doesn’t take much for the teeth enamel to be weakened or worn down based on consistent grazing of food throughout the day. When that happens, the teeth never get a break.
Dentists aren’t necessarily trying to limit fun during the holiday season but they just want people to be cognizant of the possible ramifications of failing to maintain solid oral health at this time of year.
It’s essential to drink water to combat sugar and acidity that come from many foods and beverages. It’s also important to brush as often as you do the rest of the year. That way one’s tooth enamel will remain intact.
