In North Canton, Ohio, Fall is such a beautiful season with its own character. As far as oral health is concerned, autumn is a season full of risks if you are not vigilant enough. From fluctuating temperatures to sugar-laden holidays today’s Christina Brinda DDS tips include a look at your oral health and what you should be on the lookout for.
Fall Holidays & Your Teeth
Did you know that October is also home to “Homemade Cookies Day”? For most people sugar is more available to them during this time than any other time of the year.
For this Fall Dental Tip, Christina Brinda DDS your North Canton Dentist wants to remind you to not relax about brushing your teeth and flossing. We all may take a cheat day or two when it comes to eating around the holidays. However never cheat when it comes to your oral health.
Avoid hard and sticky candy as they can have a worse impact on your teeth than other candies. You know the reason for it? The sticky or hard candy can linger longer on your teeth, increasing the risk of damage. Hard candy can also cause your tooth to chip or break, when bitten into too harshly. Christina Brinda DDS your North Canton dentist has seen so many patients with chipped or broken teeth. Even though we love to see you at our Jackson Township location, Christina Brinda DDS, prefers you to keep your smile without injured teeth.
Dental Work during Holidays
Holidays are meant to be enjoyed with family and friends. Aside from missing all of the fun holiday dinner conversations and good food, on a cold morning, would you really want to experience the pain of cold air whipping past your painful tooth?
If you do have a painful tooth, Christina Brinda DDS, would be happy to take care of any of your outstanding dental work before winter sets in. Now is the best time to not procrastinate on your cosmetic issues you wanted to address for a long time. A new smile will make you the envy of your family as you embark on a new year.
Talk to Dr Christina Brinda, DDS your North Canton Dentist, if you are not happy with your appearance and teeth. We would love to give you a new smile and the confidence a new smile brings.
