How to Avoid Cavities This Thanksgiving

Dental Cleanings And Exams Webster, TXWith casseroles covered in sugar, endless amounts of pies and cookies, and the start of the holiday season, there’s reason enough for our dentists at Clear Lake Dental Care to worry about all of our patients’ oral health. To help you avoid any cavities this Thanksgiving, we have created a list of some basic— but useful— tips.

Drink More Water

Water is a lifesaver for your teeth during Thanksgiving time. Why exactly? Water helps to speed up your salivary glands which work to wash away sugar, germs, and bacteria from your teeth. Additionally, water itself can also rinse away germs, sugar, and bacteria.

Avoid the Alcohol

Having a drink or two with your Thanksgiving dinner may sound like a good idea, but a lot of cocktails and wine contain sugar which isn’t exactly good for your teeth. Try to avoid alcoholic beverages this Thanksgiving and just stick with some water or unsweetened tea instead.

Brush Your Teeth After Dinner

If you really want to keep your mouth healthy this Thanksgiving, don’t forget to brush your teeth right after Thanksgiving dinner. Remember that the longer that sugar stays on your teeth for, the more likely you are to get cavities. Whereas if you brush right away, you are more likely to be cavity free.

The last thing that you want to end up with this Thanksgiving is a mouth full of cavities. To keep your mouth as clean and healthy as possible, use these basic tips this holiday. To learn more about ways that you can avoid cavities or schedule your next dental cleaning, contact our Webster office today and contact us at 281-557-8097.
