You’ve got a sweet tooth you’re trying to control. Then you find yourself at a social event with loads of sweet treats, there for the taking. What to do? Here are a few ideas, not necessarily endorsed by your dentist in Arcadia CA:
1. Lock yourself in a closet.
2. Sew your mouth shut.
3. Wear a shock collar that’s sensitive to sugar particles.
At Premier Dental Esthetics – Peter S. Young, DDS we understand how hard it is to avoid sweets, especially during sugar-filled holidays. We encourage both unfettered joy and healthy living for all of our Arcadia patients.
Moderation in candy intake can help with the prevention of dental caries, but so can consistent brushing and flossing and regular cleanings and check-ups at Premier Dental Esthetics. Keeping the mouth clean and being meticulous are strong indicators of a happy mouth.
We’re not here to tell our patients to avoid sugar altogether. We’re not even here to tell you just to sneak a little. Eat as much as your child will let you – just be sure and brush thoroughly afterward. Keep in mind that eating a candy bar and then brushing is better than sucking on a lollipop for a half hour.
When it comes to caring for the teeth of our patients, the team at Premier Dental Esthetics in Arcadia works tirelessly to make quality cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry available. Schedule your next appointment with us today.
