Of course, the last thing you want to hear is that there are more plans to create on the horizon! Don’t worry, this doesn’t entail anything too grueling. Much the opposite of attempting to plan a meal for 20 plus people, figure out travel details, or purchase presents for every unique personality in your life, oral health protection over the holidays is simple. Your Temecula dentist just happens to have some easy tips to make the experience stress-free.

Think About Your Schedule

You have a schedule that promotes optimal oral health. You wake up at a certain time and go to sleep at a certain time, which makes brushing twice a day and flossing once a day second nature. However, when the holidays turn your autopilot mode into something totally different, it’s easy to miss a dental hygiene session. Your Temecula dentist suggests that you simply have a pre-holiday conversation with yourself about your schedule and figure out the best new times to brush and floss. As a result, you’ll be prepared and your smile will stay clean.

Keep Gum On Hand

Yes, you read that correctly. Not just any gum will do, of course. However, your Temecula dentist encourages patients to keep sugarless gum on hand if they are worried about dealing with oral health stress because they’re going to drink eggnog and eat cookies without remaining near a brush and floss. Chewing sugarless gum (especially if it’s minty) will both keep your breath nice and approachable, while removing bacteria and food particles from your smile.
