Deck the halls with boughs of holly, the holidays are coming! Everything should be more fun and festive during the holidays. Even dental care doesn’t have to be boring or feel like a chore. Here are our favorite products and tips for fun and festive holiday dental care!
Brushing your teeth shouldn’t be something you put off, especially during the holidays! To help liven up your routine and make it more festive and fun, try some new products that fit the season.
Toothpaste, dental floss, and mouthwash can all be found in the ever-popular peppermint flavor, but also in cinnamon, orange, and other seasonal flavors for festive holiday dental care. A new season is a perfect time to freshen up your dental care kit with fresh products, so don’t be afraid to get adventuresome!
Just make sure that any festive holiday dental care products you try are approved by the ADA (American Dental Association) to ensure that they contain all the necessary ingredients to keep your smile healthy and bright.
Fun New Tools
Festive holiday dental care isn’t just about festive flavors, it can also include fun new tools to help make your dental care routine more effective, efficient, and exciting!
Many of our patients rave about the results and ease of use that upgrading to an electric toothbrush can bring to their dental care routine. Many exciting features now come standard on electric toothbrushes, from pressure sensors to built-in timers to the capability to connect to an app on a smartphone.
If you’re thinking about upgrading to a new electric toothbrush, it can be helpful to read reviews online or ask your dentist for their recommendations on the latest models and features to best fit your dental care needs.
Holiday Treats for Healthy Teeth
The holiday season wouldn’t be complete without festive treats, so it’s important to know which ones are good or bad for your teeth. In general, it’s best to limit your sugar intake, and when you do enjoy sweet treats, brush as soon as possible afterward. Sticky treats like caramel or candy apples can be especially tough on your dental health. Instead, try opting for holiday treats with alternative sweeteners that are healthier for your teeth. For more healthy holiday treat ideas, ask your dentist at your next appointment for any favorites they might recommend!
