Don’t Let Holiday Treats Ruin Your Teeth

‘Twas the day after Christmas and all over your teeth, was the detrimental effect of those darn holiday treats…
With Christmas less than a week away, Sugar Fix Dental Loft thought we’d check in with our readers and see how the consumption of holiday sweets and treats is going for everyone. Don’t be embarrassed. We’ve all been there, done that. Hopefully, none of us have fallen in to the inevitable food coma, yet. Save that for Christmas Day. Let’s all face the facts: At some point we will find ourselves devouring astronomical amounts of sugar from trying baked goodies at every party and family meal you attend. We’ve all muttered the words “I’m just going to test this out” or “Maybe just one bite.”
The consequence of consuming all those scrumptious gingerbread men and sugar cookies leaves us feeling not so hot. Not only do our blood sugar levels spike and drop drastically, our teeth are the first line of defense against the greedy glucose molecules wanting to get in our bellies. They take the brunt of the blow as soon as we bite into those delectable desserts around the dinner table. So, how do we protect them?
Rest assured you are in excellent hands here at Chicago’s Sugar Fix Dental Loft. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Jessica T. Emery and her clinical assistant Laney Judson want you to enjoy life and indulge when necessary. Call Sugar Fix and make an appointment today to make sure your teeth are in tip top shape before the detrimental effect of too much chocolate (I know, right?) commences. Or better yet, come on in after the holidays when a new year beckons a new you and Dr. Emery will work her magic to ensure you teeth are surviving the aftermath of the candy cane catastrophe.
Contrary to popular belief, daily brushing and occasional flossing (and maybe crossing your fingers) is not enough to keep your smile healthy for a lifetime. At Sugar Fix Dental Loft, we want to educate patients on proper dental care, as this
common misconception can lead to a number of oral health problems. Cavities, anyone? It is imperative that you also visit the dentist every six months for a routine exam and cleaning. Dr. Jessica T. Emery offers these and other general dentistry services at our warm and inviting Lakeview dental loft.
Your teeth may appear to be clean and healthy on the surface when you smile after biting into that delicious peppermint bark. However, Dr. Emery can detect many issues that are not as readily evident to you. Sugar Fix will address any problems
that are found, and administer the necessary treatments. To learn more about our general dentistry services, contact our Chicago dental loft today.
When your teeth are taken care of, you can enjoy those snowy walks through winter wonderlands, homemade fires, movie marathons of Home Alone and advent calendars (with tiny pieces of chocolate, of course!), performance of The Nutcracker ballet and so much more. Nightmares of rotting teeth are in the past. Fall asleep tonight with visions of sugar plum fairies dancing in your head, safe and sound in your warm, cozy bed.
