How to keep your family’s teeth healthy this Christmas

December 4, 2014

It’s a great time of year: for families, for presents… and for festive food and drink! Follow our tips this Christmas for a season of festive smiles:


Watch out for hidden sugar
Christmas food is delicious- and it’s also often full of hidden sugar. Did you know there are 8 teaspoons of sugar in a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie?

Try to keep those treats to mealtimes
Christmas is a time of sweets galore: at work, at home, and even in chocolate advent calendars. Treats are great- just try to enjoy them at mealtimes and limit the number of acid attacks on your teeth each day.

Don’t forget to brush twice a day
School holidays and family trips away are great fun, breaking up the normal routines of life.  But don’t forget the essential habit of brushing your teeth for two minutes, twice a day.
