Healthy Teeth for The New Year - A Holiday Survival Guide for Your Teeth from a Top Miami Dentist

It’s your favorite time of year and you have invested your hard earned money on teeth whitening services, and now you want to keep it—especially through the holiday season. Unfortunately, just because your teeth are whiter this does not mean it will last forever.

You’ll need to stay away from stained foods and drinks to avoid the spotting in your smile.
Some of those staining foods and drinks include:

sports drinks

While some of y our favorite treats can stain the teeth, this does not mean you have to stop consuming them completely. There are ways to still eat your favorite foods and drinks and still keep your teeth sparkling. Try these dental holiday hacks.

Cut back:
Some of these foods are extremely healthy for your overall health especially blackberries and blueberries because of its antioxidants. You can still eat these treats, but eat them moderately.

If you’re too nervous to consume staining fruits, replace them with other antioxidant sources. Apples, pears, cauliflower, grapefruit, and melons are great replacements to keep up with your antioxidant intake.

Use a straw:
Whether you’re drinking your favorite soda or tea, sip through a straw to avoid staining. It’ll keep the staining away from your front teeth.

Swallow swiftly:
When you drink your favorite beverages, do so quickly and not let the liquid linger in your mouth.

Rinse and brush:
After your meal, rinse your mouth with water right away followed by a thorough brush to clean your teeth from the staining foods.
