It is that time of the year when our homes are going to be filled with lots of sweets and chocolates. We understand that it is very difficult to not eat such tempting sweets.
But what about dental health?
Follow these few things to have a happy and healthy Diwali.
At the end of a hectic fun filled day do not forget to brush your teeth at night too. Brushing your teeth twice daily is very important.You should also brush properly every time you have sweets. Make sure that your kid also brushes after eating sweets.
If you do not floss regularly, start flossing from this Diwali. Increase flossing to twice daily.
3. HAVING SWEETS ONLY AT MEAL TIMES
It is impossible to avoid sweets and chocolates during Diwali. But you can schedule them after meal instead of having them anytime in the day. This will reduce the frequency of having sweets. It is better to have sweets all at once than to eat a little here and there.
4. DRINKING WATER
Drinking lots of water can help keep your mouth flushed out and sugars to minimum.
5. EATING HEALTHY
Eating healthy to balance out sugar intake is a wonderful way to keep blood sugar from spiking. Munching on fresh apples, carrots can actually scrub away plaque buildup and sugars in your mouth, and offer hydration that has been depleted.
Have A Safe And Cavity Free Diwali.
