Protecting Your Smile This Winter

Posted on 10/25/2017 by Front Office
Winter National Dental Hicksville NY 11801-5062
Your smile will almost always be the first thing people notice about you, and this is why people pay so much attention to their teeth. With weather changes come new requirements when in terms or caring for teeth and keeping that smile as bright as possible.

The winter is especially gruesome, what with the possibility of running into teeth related issues. Here are a few tips on how to take care of one's teeth during the winter.

Oral hygiene

Nothing should change during the winter; in fact, the emphasis on oral hygiene should be even stronger. Make sure teeth are brushed after meals, and that they are properly flossed. One of the biggest problems most people complain about is the sensitivity and cold.

This can very easily be fixed at home by changing to desensitizing toothpaste. If you suffer from this problem every year, it is advisable to start using the toothpaste, long before the winter comes as its effects take time. Desensitizing toothpaste can be potassium of calcium based.

Water intake
Water intake is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer. The recommended 2 liters per day limit should be upheld during both of these extreme months. Water keeps the gums and teeth moist and keeps the saliva juices flowing.

Without saliva, bacteria builds up in the mouth and this increases the likelihood of teeth related problems. Remember, though, that sugary beverages are not necessarily a good way to stay hydrated as the sugar helps bacteria reproduce.

Other measures to keep your teeth healthy and good looking include limiting time outdoors and diet adjustments. Not many people realize it, but the teeth care in the winter requires just as much effort as the much warmer months of the year. We will be happy to provide dental care tips for the cold winter months to keep your smile bright.

"My wife and I lived in New York for a few years before moving to Colorado. When we were there, our one and only dentist was Dr. Fischler at National Dental! I highly recommend his work, and if we're ever back that way, we'll make sure to stop in!"
~ Keith M.

"I have never had an issue with the staff. Everyone here is very friendly, which is extremely helpful when visiting the dentist. It makes for a much less stressful experience!"
~ Jenna P.
"I have not been to the dentist in over 20 years because of an extremely bad experience when I was a child. I HAD to go recently after I cracked a tooth! Dr. Fischler is so nice and works very quickly. He explains everything as he does it, and the entire procedure was 100% pain free. I couldn't believe it!"
~ Natalie D.
