Healthy Holiday Treats for your Teeth

Maintaining the teeth and gums in good condition is not only essential in keeping a presentable, pleasant appearance, but also when it comes to preserving one's general health and wellness. However, statistics have shown that cases of tooth decay and gum disease have been rampant globally-an indication that oral health has yet to be taken more seriously.

The not-so-secret regimen is of course this: regular brushing of teeth, flossing, and dental consultations. But what's commonly forgotten by most people is that diet is also an important factor in keeping the teeth and gums healthy. Yes, what's in the fridge is just as important in what's by the bathroom sink when it comes to oral health!
