Don’t Overindulge on Holiday Goodies

The holidays will be here before you know it and that means lots of food you wouldn’t normally indulge in. Of course, there is the good stuff that isn’t bad for your teeth, such as the Thanksgiving turkey, and fresh green beans, but other holiday foods can cause serious problems for your teeth and your gums.

According to your dentist in Independence It’s okay to indulge, just be careful, and when in doubt pass those caramels over for something healthier for your body and your teeth.

Plan Ahead for Healthy Teeth and Gums

While you won’t know, what every holiday food table will be like you can plan ahead. If your company is having dinner at a local restaurant, there will probably be a set menu. Ask your boss or call the eatery in advance, especially if you are avoiding sticky, sugary, starchy, or acidic foods.

If you wear dentures and are worried about an unfortunate accident, know what’s on the menu. The last thing you want is to endure jokes at next year’s family Christmas party.

If you do wear dentures, talk to Dr. David Schaefer about dental implants. Dental implants are just as strong as natural teeth and will allow you to eat what you want and smile when you like.

Still Time for Cosmetic Dentistry

While you may want to start the dental implant procedure after the holidays, you can still have a brighter smile with other cosmetic dentistry treatments. Professional tooth whitening can happen chair side or in a couple of weeks depending on what you decide. Dental crowns and porcelain veneers take two appointments, but there is still plenty of time.

If you would like a healthy smile, call and schedule an appointment with your cosmetic dentist in Independence. The holidays are almost here and you want to be ready with a smile that can’t be beat.
