Christmas is a time for celebration and joy, so it’s important that you have a smile that you can be proud of! Whether you wear dentures or not, here are some tips on how to keep your smile looking beautiful and bright throughout the holiday season.
It’s important to keep up with your regular cleaning routine during the holidays. If you wear dentures, make sure to clean them every day using only gentle toothbrushes and non-abrasive cleaners. Avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage your dentures. For natural teeth, use fluoride toothpaste and brush twice daily, floss once a day, and visit your dentist for regular checkups.
A healthy diet is essential for keeping your smile bright! Eating lots of fruits and vegetables will help keep your gums healthy and strong. Eating crunchy foods such as apples or carrots can also help scrub away any plaque buildup from your teeth. Avoid sugary drinks like soda or juice which can lead to cavities or discoloration of teeth. If you wear dentures, avoid sticky foods such as caramel or taffy which can cause them to come loose.
Avoid Staining Drinks
Alcoholic beverages can stain both natural teeth and dentures if consumed in excess. Coffee and tea are also known staining agents but they don’t have to be completely off limits—just try adding some milk or cream to make them less acidic on your smile.
