Are you pressed for time as you do your Christmas shopping? Do you struggle with all of the events you need to attend this month? Please don’t forget to brush your teeth amidst this busy season to avoid developing dental problems.

Stay away from too much sugar

sweet treats

Cakes, pies, and other sinful dessert items will surely be offered in Christmas parties. Try not to give in to temptation of having a sugar high. If you really must, take small pieces or bites of the sweet offerings to satisfy your cravings.

Go to scheduled dental checkups

If you have a dental checkup scheduled, do your best to keep it to ensure that your teeth stay healthy even during the holidays.

Avoid drinking too much red wine

Red wine can stain your teeth, and consuming copious amounts of this beverage can lead to a massive headache the day after the party. Stick to red wine, water, or other light-coloured beverages instead.

Relax
