6 Tips for Cavity-Free Holidays - continued

#3: Limit your alcohol intake 
’Tis the season for egg nog, Brandy Alexanders and glog! If you choose to imbibe, try to drink water alongside your drinks. And remember: Too much alcohol can dry out your mouth. 

#4: Take it easy on the hard candies 
Some candies are more problematic than others. Hard candies can put your teeth at risk because in addition to being full of sugar, they’ve also been known to cause broken or chipped teeth. (Be careful not to break or chip your teeth when eating nuts as well!)

6 Tips for Cavity-Free Holidays

#1: Timing matters 
Timing matters. While everything is fine in moderation, it helps to eat sweets and other sugary foods with meals or shortly after mealtime. Saliva production increases during meals and helps cancel out acids produced by bacteria in your mouth and helps rinse away food particles.  

#2: Be picky if it's sticky
When it comes to picking healthy snacks, many people put dried fruit at the top of the list. But many dried fruits are sticky and sticky foods tend to stay on the teeth longer than other types of food. If you find yourself eating a lot of dried fruits such as cranberries, make sure to rinse with water and brush carefully.

Porcelain Dental Veneers

Smile Makeover Dentist Beaverton OR'Smile Makeovers' in as Little as Two Visits!
Our porcelain veneers may provide the answer for achieving the smile you've always wanted. Veneers are thin, durable sheets of the most state-of-the-art dental ceramic available. They are adhered to natural teeth in a way that makes your teeth appear straight and uniform, creating an inviting smile. In no time, your crooked teeth can look like they've had years of straightening. When applied, veneers can completely conceal a chip or crack, or even redesign a worn or misshapen tooth. The veneer is formed to match the color of the surrounding teeth, so your smile looks completely natural. If you have misshapen teeth, unattractive gaps, or discolorations, ask us if veneers are right for you.

General Dentistry

Oral Hygiene Care Beaverton ORThe Importance of Hygiene Visits
One of the most crucial reasons to visit your dentist regularly is to have your teeth cleaned by a professional hygienist. Even when you take great care to properly brush and floss, some soft and sticky plaque is left behind. Over time, plaque hardens into tartar, which is even more difficult to remove with your typical toothbrush and floss. Tartar accumulates below the gumline as well as on the surface of your teeth. Unremoved plaque and tartar increase your risk of more serious infection developing within your teeth and gums. Recent research shows a definite link between untreated gum disease and other serious conditions like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Having your teeth cleaned routinely is one of the foremost things you can do to stay healthy!
