The holiday season is here, and kids are dreaming of Santa, presents and treats.
A few tips to keep your child’s teeth healthy and safe from those holiday treat “sugar bugs,” as we call them...
Set some limits. Try to pace the sweets consumption, and set up some easy-to-follow daily rules that still allow for enjoyment.
Carry water with you. Have the kids swish the water around in their mouths after treats. Avoid sticky and chewy candies, especially if your child has crowns or braces.
Remind them to brush every night before bed. Don’t let those “bugs” sit on their teeth all night.
Finally, check your child’s teeth every day. School breaks can sometimes lead to a little too much relaxing when it comes to brushing habits. Happy holidays to all!
