Here at Derek M. Lichter, DDS, Inc. in Chula Vista, California, we want to help keep your smile healthy. With the holidays approaching, we understand the temptations of the sugary delights and the amazing spices that fill the air. During the holidays it’s way too easy to let our oral care slide. That is why our team is here to remind you of healthy products you can use to scare off cavities this season and keep your smile healthy.

Here are four awesome products to help keep your smile healthy through the holiday season:

-Toothbrush: It’s usually best to choose a soft-bristled toothbrush. Many people always wonder if a manual toothbrush is better than an electric one, and the truth is it’s all a matter of personal preference. The important thing to remember is to always have a toothbrush for your teeth.

-Toothpaste: There are dozens of different kinds of toothpaste depending on your personal needs. If you have sensitivity issues, then there are options. Either way, a cavity-fighting toothpaste is always best when it comes to keeping cavities out of your smile.

-Floss: Flossing is often a missed step in oral hygiene, yet vital to oral health. Floss keeps food particles and sticky sugary substances from latching onto your gums deep within the gum line and between your teeth. Waxed floss is usually easier for people to use than unwaxed floss, however, either kind of floss will help keep your smile healthy.

-Mouthwash: This clears all remaining bacteria from your teeth, gums, and tongue. They also have powerful abilities to help fight off cavities and polish off your smile leaving a beautiful and fresh smile behind.
