How to Reduce Holiday Sugar and Sweets

Christmas cookiesYour dentist in Midtown is so excited to wish you and your family a very happy holiday season. It seems like this year flew by, and it’s hard to believe we’re at the end of it already. As you venture out to celebrate and commemorate this time of year with friends, family, and co-workers, there are some ways you can protect yourself and your teeth from too much sugar. Let us help!

More Sleep. Less Sugar.

Who would have thought that all you have to do to cut back on sugar is to sleep more? It almost sounds too good to be true, right? Well, the research can’t be wrong, and it says that when you sleep less than five hours each night, you might gravitate towards sugar drinks for an energy boost. If you’re feeling sluggish, try swigging water instead, it will help you feel better without a sugar crash later and help protect your pearly whites. 

Provide Sugarless or Reduced Sugar Options

Are you entertaining this year? Think about yourself and your guests in terms of sweetness overload. If you’re putting out a candy dish or two, try sugar-free options and those that contain Xylitol. If you’re in charge of cooking or baking, consider cutting back on the sugar or using a healthier alternative. Your smile, your body, and your guests will thank you!

Remember Your Best Decay Defense

Your Midtown dentist will be the first to tell you that good ol’ brushing and flossing are the best ways to get rid of possible sugar build-up on your teeth that can lead to cavities. Remember to floss once and brush twice a day for two minutes — that’s all it takes to keep teeth clean and healthy. It’s essential to brush and floss after indulging in decadent desserts. 

If you really want to keep your smile healthy and help your family, consider giving people the gift of a healthy smile this holiday season with some new, cool dental tools like toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss. It’s surely a gift that will get used, whether they want to admit it or not! If you need an exam or have questions about your oral health, please schedule a consultation today at our dental office in Midtown! We are here to help you.
