Happy Holidays (And Don’t Forget About Your Smile)!

We wouldn’t be an oral surgery practice, of course, if we could make it through a single sentence without reminding you about your smile. While the upcoming holiday weekend is going to be chock full of surprises and fun, we would like to help offer the slightest morsel of a recommendation: Take a little bit of our advice to heart, so you wake up on Monday morning with a smile that’s still healthy, comfortable, and in wonderful shape. Now that we’ve made our suggestion for responsible merriment, we send out our warmest wishes for a lovely celebration!

Skip Foods On The Dangerous List

When you look at a food that you know could potentially (and quickly) damage your smile, whether you have dental implants in place, a natural smile, you have oral surgery scheduled for the future, or otherwise: Skip it. You will always be much happier with intact teeth than without!

Say Yes To Indulging If You Wish

Want to indulge in that apple pie, hot cocoa, sugar cookie, and the list goes on and on? Go ahead! Just remember that it’s all about keeping your smile clean as often as you can. When you coat it in sugar, be sure to rinse it with water. When possible, go ahead and brush after snacks and desserts, too.

Remember To Brush And Floss

Remember that during your holiday celebration, plaque isn’t going to be off on a vacation. As always, it will coat your teeth. Avoid encouraging future problems by brushing and flossing as you usually do.

Don’t Let The Merriment Sweep You Up
