If you want a top-notch holiday smile, then you need to protect it everywhere you go. This is important because there are many things that can attack and harm your teeth and gums. So, to help you protect your holiday smile, our dentist, Dr. James Schall, has some tips for you.

First, keep up on oral hygiene. All you need to do is brush twice a day, floss and rinse once a day, and visit your dentist every six months for your routine dental cleaning and exam.

Second, wear a mouthguard. If you like to play football, go sledding, play basketball, and ice skate throughout the holiday season, then you need to protect your teeth and gums with a handy device called a mouthguard. If you wear a mouthguard, you can avoid oral injury.

Third, avoid tooth-harming foods. There are many holiday foods and drinks that can be dangerous for your oral health, especially sugary and acidic foods and drinks. If you’re not careful, the sugar and acid can promote cavities and sensitivity. It’s best to avoid these products altogether so you can protect your holiday smile.
