4 Smart Ways to Keep Teeth Holiday Healthy

The Thanksgiving Weekend has arrived as the Lions battled the Bears, and Michigan WILL BEAT Ohio State. Christmas will be here before we know it! We all love to see family and friends during this special season, enjoy holiday parties, and eat and drink those special treats that we only have this time of year. The professional staff at DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry enjoys holiday gatherings and treats too! We also know that it’s important to stay focused on keeping our teeth healthy every day of the year!

Dr. Jim DeCapite and his professional staff want everyone in Livonia and the Westside to be aware of four smart ways to keep teeth healthy during the upcoming holidays:

  • Choose healthy foods: At family gatherings, holiday parties, and office events, there always seem to be lots of cookies, candy, and other sweet treats. There are probably also plates of cheese and crunchy fresh vegetables that are a better choice for healthy teeth. Enjoy treats in moderation and choose more healthy foods during the holidays and throughout the year.
  • Limit sugary Christmas drinks: Holiday beverages usually include punch, eggnog, and alcoholic mixes. At DeCapite Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we urge our patients to limit these sugary drinks and to choose healthier beverages for better dental health.
  • Stay hydrated: Water is the best beverage for keeping the body hydrated and the teeth healthy every day of the year. During the holidays, in particular, it’s important to drink plenty of water to wash away those sugary treats!
  • Brush and floss every day: Family trips to see relatives and a calendar full of holiday activities can keep us busy. There is so much to do and see in the Metro Detroit area alone! Take the time, though, to brush and floss each day to keep those teeth healthy throughout the hectic holiday season.

Dr. Jim DeCapite and his professional staff want all our patients in the Metro Detroit area to take the time to enjoy quality dental health during the holidays and throughout the year. Contact us today for a professional dental cleaning and checkup to start the holidays off with a clean, healthy mouth!
