Christmas, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and other holidays are always accompanied with a lot of eating. Are your teeth ready? The dentists at Rifkin Raanan give some recommendations about preventive procedures to consider during the holiday seasons.
It might sound illogical getting a teeth cleaning and then getting them dirty again. However, after a thorough cleaning of your teeth, involving the removal of all existing tartar and plaque, a concentrated fluoride gel is applied. This gel will help prevent cavities over the holidays.
Brushing and flossing your teeth thoroughly will help maintain your oral hygiene through out the holidays, mouthwash and gum chewing is not enough!
Wine lovers, coffee and tea drinkers, you should take this tip serious. Wine, tea and coffee stain the teeth. Rifkin Raanan suggests drinking water after drinking wine, coffee or tea to ensure the acids do not stick to the enamel of your teeth, staining them.
