Amidst the jubilant gatherings of family and friends, feasting takes center stage during this joyous season. With our mouths busier than ever, indulging in delightful treats and engaging in lively conversations, it becomes imperative to pay extra attention to dental hygiene. The last thing anyone wants is to grapple with dental issues during this festive period.
While ensuring your abode is primed for the auspicious New Lunar Year, it’s also an opportune moment to prioritize the health of your gums and teeth. Consider scheduling a visit to your dentist for a routine check-up or, if it's been a while, book a consultation to address any lingering concerns.
Here are some tips to safeguard against potential dental woes:
Steer clear of excessively hard nuts, candies, or ice cubes, as they can compromise tooth enamel, rendering it susceptible to cracks.
Opt for beverages with lower sugar and acidity levels, ensuring they're neither too hot nor too cold to avoid discomfort. Using a straw minimizes direct contact between your teeth and the drink.
Attend to any pending dental work before the festivities kick off. While it may be low on your current agenda, reconsider the importance of preempting any unwelcome surprises amidst the celebrations.
Keep a toothbrush handy to brush after snacks or meals, preventing sticky rice cakes or other treats from adhering to your teeth.
In the event of a dental emergency during the festive period, ensure you have your dentist’s or hospital’s emergency contact information readily available. Existing patients of Specialist Dental Group can contact the emergency number provided on their dentists’ business cards.
