The Christmas and New Year break usually involves lots of functions, parties and BBQ’s, which can mean lots of cocktails, wines and treat foods.This can be highly detrimental for your dental health, resulting in stained teeth and decay. Keep in mind that alcoholic beverages usually contain very high levels of sugar and acidity. This can cause worn enamel, cavities and stained teeth.
Try to have some water after each beverage or treat, as the water will help dilute the sugar and acids in your saliva, and wash away colouring to prevent stained teeth. Even after a big night out, it’s important to brush your teeth, to prevent the acids and sugars coating your teeth overnight.
