Why You Should Be More Strict On Your Dental Hygiene During the Holidays
November 3, 2017
Think about exciting food temptations in the annual holidays! While they regularly call for cheers and happiness in the celebration, they also bring in particular consequences in the dental clinic. Unfortunately, the increase of food intake is not matched by an adept practice of dental hygiene. So when do we expect such things to happen?
You must be fully aware of the increased candy sales of sweets factories during the Christmas costumes. The continuing tradition of kids in costumes knocking from one door to another in a neighborhood to do trick-or-treating is the main culprit to this. However, little did people know that there is an increase number of people, especially children, who suffer from cavities as an aftermath of a night filled with sugary goodness. Since the said tradition is mostly participated by children, aged 6 – 11, dental clinics usually have their services ready for the young ones during post-Halloween. To say the least, having a disastrous dental problem is the scariest thing of all about this yearly occasion.
Christmas, as we all know, is a time of giving. Children are thrilled to check on the socks they hang near the chimney on Christmas Eve to get their rewards from Santa. Although many other presents may be given and received this season, like toys and clothes, sweets have already marked its place in the hearts of kids – whatever the occasion may be. Aside from that, desserts in the form of sugary cakes and pastries may also be present in gatherings or parties attended by both children and adults. In the spirit of giving, it is also important that you give yourself time to take good care of your dental health. After celebrating the happiest time of the year, you probably don’t want to see yourself dealing with an oral problem in a dental clinic.
For Christian devotees, Easter is considered a time for joy after the savior’s resurrection. But regardless of religion, many people in America and also in the world join in the celebration to have a good time. It is in this festivity that people play egg and bunny related games and do traditional Easter practices. For Americans, it is common to see families and friends give each other Easter greeting cards and chocolate Easter eggs and bunny-inspired confectionaries. It is in this event that sweets come in their very artistic forms in terms of creativity and design. This artistry, however, often deceives into taking more sugar than the usual which takes us sooner to the dental clinic than scheduled. Careful!
