If you want a top-notch smile this Christmas, then there are things you can do to care for your teeth and gums. Our dentist, Dr. Christopher M. Granillo, DDS, LLC, would like to help you because he believes you deserve the best smile possible. So, he is happy to give you the tips you need to keep your teeth and gums in pristine condition this Christmas, which are:

-Don’t use your teeth as tools, which means don’t use your teeth to open your presents. This is recommended because using your teeth this way can damage the enamel. The unnatural pressure that is applied to the teeth can crack the enamel and eventually harm the chompers.

-Try to keep the sweets consumption down to a minimum. We don’t mean you should cut the candy, cinnamon rolls, and other treats out of your day; we just mean that you should eat them in moderation so you can avoid the creation of cavities.

-Don’t forget to brush and floss. Christmas is a busy and exciting day and it’s easy to forget to clean your smile. This can be very dangerous. So, make sure to clean your teeth and gums, even if you have to set a reminder for yourself or place reminder sticky notes around the house.
