Christmas candy canes, chocolates, toffees and lollipops, they’re all perfect festive treats for children and adults alike. We know they taste great and we know it’s Christmas. Tis the season of giving and of pure indulgence but wait……think about the effect of all these delicious delights on your poor teeth.

The truth is sweets can cause tooth decay. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria in the mouth using sugar from foods and drinks to produce acids that dissolve and damage the teeth. As sweets are pretty much pure sugar they are a large villain in the war against tooth decay.

It’s not all doom and gloom though as you are able to enjoy sugary food and drinks in moderation and we have listed a few handy hints below to keep you on top of your oral health whilst enjoying the sugary delights and delicacies of Christmas.

Handy Hints

  • Brush immediately after eating sugary foods or drinks when possible
  • Eat firm or crisp foods such as an apple, celery or carrots to naturally clean your teeth if you can’t get to your toothbrush
  • Floss every day
  • Brush your teeth for 2 minutes twice a day
  • See your dentist or hygienist for a check up and clean every 6 months
  • Coral and light red lipstick can make teeth look whiter than lighter shades

Vigilance really is the key to preventing negative effects of sugar on your teeth. Try limiting yours and your family’s sugar intake and replacing it with healthy foods that strengthen teeth. If you add this to regular dental visits, brushing morning and night and flossing daily, it all goes a long way to winning the battle against tooth decay.
