Fall Oral Health Tips

Fall is an amazing time of year, bringing a colorful change of weather as we slip into a routine before the holidays arrive. It can be a truly busy time, especially as kids are back in school and the days are getting shorter.

It can become a little difficult to remember the small details, like your oral health, so we have some tips for you to keep in mind this wonderful, busy fall season.

Tip #1: Fall is a time full of fun holidays, celebrations, and great food - all of which can be loaded with sugar. Between the fun of collecting Halloween candy and the warm apple cider to warm you up while you go to the pumpkin patch, the sugar can really add up and be harmful to your teeth. Make sure to practice proper dental hygiene by brushing twice a day for two minutes and daily flossing to keep sugar damage at bay.

Tip #2: Colder weather can also cause a lot of irritation if you’re experiencing sensitivity to extreme temperatures. Fun, chilly weather or even a nice warm soup can cause quite a bit of discomfort. This sensitivity could be caused by several factors, such as damaged enamel or even gum recession. If you’re experiencing any sensitivity, make sure to check in with your dentist to ensure that your teeth stay in tip-top shape while you enjoy the wonderful season.

Tip #3: Don’t forget to schedule your end-of-year appointment, especially if you have dental insurance! Take advantage of those benefits so you are set for the upcoming new year. Make sure you schedule it sooner than later, otherwise it might be too late!
