Front Range Dental Center PLLC, your Fort Collins dentist, wants to help you prevent cavities. Our Fort Collins Dental Practice serves residence of Fort Collins, Timanth, Windsor, Ault, Wellington, Loveland, Laporte and Cheyenne, Wyoming.
At Front Range Dental Center, we know it is tough to maintain a healthy diet during the holiday season. It is especially hard to turn down the tasty treats of Christmas. Who can resist grandma’s special cookies or the extremely rich chocolate and candy that your neighbors and friends give you? Every time very you eat that piece of candy or chocolate, the sugar slowly turns into acid, which eats away at the enamel on your teeth. Enamel helps protect your teeth against cavities, so if you do indulge on that extra piece of candy, please remember to brush your teeth afterwards to help prevent cavities from forming.
The American Dental Association recommends dried fruit or nuts as an alternative to candy and chocolate. The dried fruits and nuts have a greater nutritional value, fiber and act as an appetite suppressant. Nuts are a great source of Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B9, and they are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to reducing heart disease, lower blood pressure, and helping your immune system.
If you do indulge in sweets this Christmas, remember to brush your teeth after eating sugary treats.
Happy Holidays from the staff at Front Range Dental Center in Fort Collins.
