With less than two weeks left until Christmas, the holiday party season has begun! From work get-togethers to kids’ concerts to holiday parties with family and friends, all the upcoming fun also usually includes a lot of food and I have to admit that, despite the risk of adding a few extra pounds, I can’t wait! But going overboard on holiday delicacies isn’t the only thing to be concerned about this season. Many of my favourite festive treats also contain ingredients that can lead to acid wear. And if there’s one time I want my teeth looking their best, it’s Christmas!
Beer, wine, apple cider and cranberries are all potential culprits when it comes to acid wear because of their high acidity levels. But there are ways of making sure my teeth are protected and ProNamel toothpaste has some tips to help ensure teeth stay strong during the holiday season:
- Try reducing the amount of time that acids are in contact with the teeth.
- Minimize swirling, swishing or holding acidic drinks in your mouth or use a straw.
- Try not to brush your teeth immediately after eating or drinking.
- Make sure you brush your teeth with a soft bristled brush.
