Happy holidays from Brentwood Village Dental Clinic!
It’s been quite a year for us all, hasn’t it? There have been many ups and downs, highs and lows, peaks and valleys, etc. And through it all, we here at Brentwood Village Dental Clinic would like to thank you for your loyalty.
As a northwest Calgary-operated business, we support local. We cherish the opportunity to serve the families of our fine community, and as such, we appreciate you for choosing us. For this reason, we have assembled a modest list of oral health tips that you can implement this holiday season.
1. Keep up with your dental habits
Don’t allow the festivities and celebrations of the holidays to knock you off the good dental habits you’ve developed. All it takes is a few days to fall off the bandwagon of your healthy oral habits. Once this happens, it can be a challenging process to get back into the swing of things when the new year arrives.
To circumvent this, make the commitment to continue brushing, flossing, and drinking enough water every day. This will ensure that – even if you do indulge in some holiday drinks and sugary sweets – your good dental habits won’t be derailed.
And this segues into our next tip, which is…
2. Watch what you eat
Yes, the holidays are a time for enjoyment and entertainment. The festive celebrations are – for many people – seen as a “pass” to eat whatever they want. And while you certainly should enjoy yourself this holiday season, it’s equally important to remember that moderation is key.
So be vigilant of the food that you’re eating, as well as how much of it you’re eating. This is especially important for sticky foods such as tootsie rolls, caramels, taffy, gummy bears, and other types of candy. These foods have the propensity to stick to your teeth, which can ultimately result in damage to your enamel.
If you’re going to consume these kinds of treats, be sure to drink lots of water afterward and brush your teeth thoroughly.
However, if you want the best dental results this holiday season, it would serve you well to…
3. Come in for a pre-holiday visit
One of the best things you can do prior to the holidays is book an appointment with your dentist. A pre-holiday checkup will determine how you should conduct yourself during the holidays. If everything checks out and your oral health is in optimum condition, then you can relax and feel more comfortable splurging.
If it turns out your dental health is a bit compromised, then you’ll know you should be more conservative for your holiday celebrations. Either way, an appointment here at Brentwood Village Dental Clinic will provide you with the intel you need to make an informed decision for the holidays.
This holiday season, give the gift of dental health to a friend, relative, or colleague. Brentwood Village Dental Clinic offers teeth whitening services as well as dental crowns, bridges, fillings, and much more.
We are open 7 days a week accepting both emergency and walk-in appointments. Furthermore, we are also accepting new patients in the new year as well. So if you know of any friends, co-workers, or relatives who are in need of exceptional dental services, please don’t hesitate to send them our direction! We’re never too busy for your referrals.
Thank you and happy holidays from all of us at Brentwood Village Dental Clinic.
