Take Care of Your Teeth This New Year

Posted on : December 30, 2015  By : Wellness

 

We hope you’ve all had a wonderful festive holiday and that you’re well prepared for the New Year celebrations still to come. While we’re sure you’re looking forward to welcoming in the new year, it’s important that you remember to keep yourself safe during the celebrations. You may not realise it, but over the Christmas and New Year celebrations it’s important to pay close attention to your teeth.

 

Beware Sugary Foods

This time of year we have a tendency to overindulge ourselves on lovely, sugary foods. While your festive holiday might have been made up of chocolates, shortcakes, biscuits and ceaseless amounts of sugary fruit, your teeth have been suffering for it. Sugar is used as an energizer for the bacteria in your mouth which causes plaque to form on your teeth. Excessive amounts of sugar causes plaque to grow faster and thicker than normal, making it very hard for your saliva to wash away the harmful bacteria.

If you don’t take care of your teeth after eating too much sugary foods, you can increase your chances of tooth decay.

Take Care with Acidic Drinks

Another way you can harm your teeth is by consuming too many acidic drinks. Natural fruit drinks, fizzy drinks and alcohol can all contain certain levels of acid  and, while they may taste great, they can cause some serious damage to your teeth.

Acidic drinks can make your teeth feel fuzzy, this is due to the acid breaking the enamel- the protective layer over the surface of your teeth- down. With the breakdown of enamel comes a number of discomforts as well as an increased chance of tooth decay. Sensitive, discoloured, transparency and cracked teeth may occur in severe cases of tooth erosion.

Slips, Trips and Falls

While you may be taking good care of your teeth from the foods and drinks you consume, you may not realise the dangers of slips, trips and falls during the holiday season. If you’re out and about during New Years Eve, take care of your surroundings, the last thing you want when you’re celebrating the new year is to fall and chip or break a tooth- not only is this extremely painful, but it can also be costly to repair the damage.
