How to Take Care of Your Teeth Over the Holidays

The holidays are known as a time to indulge. While we generally have a great time, this isn’t always good for our health. However, there are still ways in which you can enjoy the holidays and remember to keep your health in decent shape. Today, the team at Halo Dental are going to pass on their expert advice on how to take care of your teeth over the holidays.

Always Remember to Brush and Floss

Our routines tend to be upended over the holiday season. We have time off work, we go on nights out and we have family over. This doesn’t mean that you should stop taking care of your teeth over the holidays. Even if you are extremely tired, it only takes a few minutes at the end of the night to brush and floss. You will feel better for it in the morning, even if the rest of your body isn’t in the best shape!

Avoid Staining

The food and drink we consume during the holiday season can contribute to staining our teeth. There is rich gravy, red wine, endless tea and coffee and all of these can make your teeth less white. Be conscious of how much of these foods you are consuming and make sure to alternate with glasses of water and clean your teeth after meals if you are consuming this type of food and liquid.

Don’t Let Bad Habits Slip In

With a lack of routine and lots of temptations around, it can be tough keeping bad habits at bay. However, you need to look at the bigger picture and while it is okay indulge every once in a while, don’t go overboard. Try to not drink too much alcohol or soda and don’t eat too many sugary foods. All of these will affect your dental health.

Common sense is the main way that you can take care of your teeth over the holidays. You know that you shouldn’t be doing these things all year round, so keep the indulgence minimal during the holidays. That way you can still have a good time, but you won’t have to deal with any unwanted dental treatment here at the Halo clinic during the new year.

The team here would like to wish all of our clients a very happy holidays and if you have any questions on how to take care of your teeth over the holidays, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


We value our patients - See what our patients have to say about their experiences at our dental practice!


Me and my family love coming to this dentist. We never feel uncomfortable. We have had many other dentists in the past but Halo is our favourite. We love the receptionist, Sukhi, she is very kind and always has a smile on her face. She greats everyone with the same kindness and makes them feel good. All around everyone I have met at Halo are kind and make sure you are the number 1 priority. We always feel like we are with family when we go to Halo. I would highly recommend coming to Halo Dental because they care about each and everyone of their clients. We will always continue to go to Halo Dental as long as we live.

My husband had his implants done at Halo and is extremely pleased and happy about them. I got my cleaning done and will recommend them to everyone.

Archana Harit

The best clinic I have been so far. I have been in Canada from last 29 years and could not find a good dentist. Just move to New Westminster two years ago and visited the Dentist in the community. Dr. Bajaj was very very professional and caring. I would recommend her to every one.
