holiday season smilesThe holiday season is when many of us let our diets relax and our tables and calendars overflow with dinner parties, dessert buffets, social drinks, and plenty of sweets. While there's nothing wrong with adding a little bit of merriment to your holiday get-togethers, be sure to keep your oral health in mind as you wine and dine your way through the season. Here are five easy tips for maintaining a healthy mouth while still enjoying yourself.

Healthier SmileWhile regular visits to your family dentist are key for overall oral health and a Healthier Smile, what you do between visits writes your family's dental report card. Proper brushing and flossing, however, can only get you so far. By practicing proper nutrition, you can take your dental hygiene a step further. To keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible, and avoid a dental emergency, moderate your consumption of the following foods and drinks. 

cavitiesMany of us are, unfortunately, all too familiar with tooth decay. Around 69% of all adults aged 35 to 44 in the U.S. have lost a tooth, whether it's because of tooth decay, gum disease, a failed root canal, or an accident.

There are many words we hate to hear at the dentist's office, but the most common ones are probably "oral cavity." Cavities, or dental caries, are a result of bacteria boring a hole in the tooth's enamel, which has to be plugged up before it spreads.
