This is the time of year where treats are covered in chocolate and dessert trays seem to be loaded with items filled with sugar. However, this is also the time of year where people's dental health may be most at stake.
While all the holiday snacks look appetizing, adults and children should be aware that overindulgence of these types of desserts could be bad for their teeth.
Eating an abundance of foods with a high sugar content can cause tooth decay, which in the first instance could create discomfort in one's mouth. However, if left untreated, the condition can lead to other serious diseases.
It may be hard to avoid such items, given it is the holiday season. So as compromise, people should administer proper dental care by flossing and brushing their teeth, especially after a night of enjoying the holiday-themed desserts.
Doing so may ensure that people start the new year with a smile, as opposed to a host of cavities that will need immediate dental care.
