Teeth-Healthy Holiday Treats

It’s that time of year again: the gatherings, gift shopping and holiday stress is about to set in. Instead of giving in to unhealthy temptations this season, aim to make oral health a priority with healthy eating that still feels like a treat and won’t harm your teeth.

Asked to bring a dessert to a work or family function? Instead of choosing something full of added sugar, go for a healthy twist: organic strawberries dipped in dark chocolate. Dark chocolate has roughly half the sugar of milk chocolate.

Baking something with the family? Try mashing bananas in place of sugar. Not only are they naturally sweet, but they’re also a good replacement for oil or butter.

Thumbprint cookies with jam are a holiday staple for many households. Give your teeth a sugar break by choosing low-sugar jam.

If the holiday season gets the best of you and you end up with tooth pain, call us to book an appointment.

Just Taking a Moment to Say…

How it happened so quickly we aren’t sure, but with less than two full months of 2021 left, we wanted to hit pause for a second and share our thanks with you.

As your partner in oral health, we strive to bring you the best in dental care. When you join us for a checkup or trust us to restore your smile, we ask you to partner with us to learn how to best care for your teeth.

Without your dedication and active role in your own oral health, we wouldn’t get to do what we love every day.

Thank you for making what’s been a tough year for the world a little better for our team. As the year winds down and the holiday season begins, we just wanted to say thanks for choosing us. We look forward to continuing to serve you for years to come.

Attention Millennials: Brush Your Teeth

A 2018 survey by OnePoll revealed a statistic that may shock you: nearly 30% of millennial respondents admitted to only brushing their teeth once each day. Even more jaw dropping, of the 2,000 respondents polled, more than half admitted that they’ve gone more than two days without brushing their teeth on at least one occasion.

As your partner in oral health, we see it as our job to help patients of all ages stick to healthy dental habits. If you’ve fallen out of a proper hygiene routine, here are a few tips to get you back into the rhythm:

1. Make brushing your top priority in the morning. As soon as you get out of bed, head for the bathroom and brush your teeth.

2. Add crunchy vegetables to your lunches. They help remove plaque buildup on the teeth.

3. If it’s been more than six months since we’ve seen you, book a checkup and clean.
