With holiday parties and dinners just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to make sure your teeth are sparkling for every photo and family gathering. Maintain a radiant holiday dental look and protect your teeth with some savvy dental tips from Beyond Smiles of Park Ridge.

Dental Tips to Smile Brighter This Winter Season

  • Regular at-home care, like brushing and flossing, is the true foundation of a vibrant, healthy smile. Despite your undoubtedly busy holiday schedule, make no compromises when it comes to daily dental care. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once to keep your teeth and gums in top shape. Proper oral hygiene also prevents bad breath and tooth staining.
  • We all love to savor the sweet moments of the holiday season, but all that extra sugar we indulge in can take a toll on our teeth. With that being said, moderation is key. Don’t be afraid to enjoy your favorite holiday treats, like hot cocoa, candy canes, and red wine. Just rinse your mouth out with water afterwards to help reduce the amount of sugar sitting on your teeth.
  • While it’s a good idea to avoid too many sweets during the holidays, one food you should feel free to indulge in is cheese. Not only is it a holiday party favorite, it also plays defense for your teeth, neutralizing acids that cause tooth decay.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water to ensure you maintain a healthy production of saliva. Saliva cleanses away harmful bacteria in your mouth that can cause cavities, gum disease, and bad breath.
  • For added sparkle, consider getting a professional teeth whitening in Park Ridge before the holiday festivities ramp up. A visit to Beyond Smiles for a whitening session can give your teeth that extra glow, making your holiday smile the brightest in the room. Plus, it’s a great way to boost your confidence for the New Year.
  • If you’ve been putting off getting cosmetic or reconstructive dental work done, now is the time to invest in your smile. Visit us at Beyond Smiles of Park Ridge for dental bonding, veneers, dental implants, Invisalign in Park Ridge, and more!
  • Ensure your dental health needs are taken care of before the holidays with a teeth cleaning and oral exam. A check-up gives your dentist the chance to identify and treat any existing issues, and clean away minor stains and plaque build-up.
