The Christmas holiday season brings out the kid in all of us, regardless of our true age. However, this season is even more meaningful to the young ones, who still see this as a magical time. While the festivities and feasts of the season may take center stage, it is still important to ensure that the oral health of children will not be neglected, to prevent dental problems from starting during this festive season.
Sweet treats are parts of the festive season. As tempting as these treats may be, make sure that you control how much your child consumes of these sweet, sticky treats. Candies, chocolates, pastries, cakes, and the like have high sugar content that can lead to tooth decay and other dental problems. These sweet food items can also cause a spike in your kids’ blood sugar levels, and leave them hyperactive the whole day and well into the night. For dessert, you can instead give fresh fruit slices to the kids so they can still have a sweet treat without the artificial and harmful sweeteners.
Do you have a scheduled dental appointment during the holiday season at the London Dental Studio? Make sure that you and your children go to any scheduled visit to the dentist even if you are swamped with holiday gatherings and other events. This will ensure that good oral health is maintained, and will instil good oral health sense in your young one’s mind.
