Don’t let your holiday cheer allow you to forget to brush!

The holidays are a time to celebrate family and friends, but don’t forget to brush your teeth!  During the holidays, it can be very easy to eat many sugary cookies, cakes, and candies.  If you don’t brush your teeth, it could lead to holey teeth, or cavities.   Cavities comes from bacteria in your mouth that produce acids.  These acids can cause holes in the enamel of your teeth.  Cavities can create more serious problems in your mouth like infections that can lead to the need to take more serious action such as tooth extractions.  But cavities can be easily prevented by brushing your teeth twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste, flossing once daily, and visiting your dentist on a regular basis.   Happy Holidays!!!
