The holidays are here, and that means that numerous of you will be eating cakes, muffins, cookies and other treats. We wish you well and hope you like all of them! To keep your teeth safe during this time of year, review the following information and how you could implement it. If you have any extra queries, feel free to contact us at 818-761-9526.

While we definitely love an awesome treat, we’d advise you to be alert around starchy sweets like baked goods and potato products. Starchy foods are infamous for sticking to teeth, making themselves tough to eliminate even with a toothbrush and two minutes of brushing. Additionally, foods with seeds can have a similar effect. If you are handed chips, a baked treat or food with seeds, make sure you take them with a little bit of water to help wash out the spaces between your teeth. Also, be sure to floss between your teeth that day extra attentively. When the food leftovers are left to sit on your teeth, they will eat away at the defensive layers and create cavities, so it’s imperative you extricate any debris right away.

We work with Studio City, California, and the surrounding communities, so dial 818-761-9526 now if you want to set up a visit with the Dr. Kolodner Dental Group Inc. office of Dr. Tatyana Kolodner.
