Be Cautious When You Imbibe This Season

No matter what we celebrate, we all love this time of year. Holiday parties, family celebrations, and neighborhood gatherings give us reason to be jolly. Sometimes, our jolly dispositions are directly related to what we drink while we make merry. While an occasional tippling is just fine, the Wayne Dental Care team wants you to be well-informed on how alcohol affects your teeth.

Acidity — The acidity found in many alcoholic beverages can do a number on your teeth. Acids compromise the strength of the enamel that protects your teeth from decay. To prevent acids from sitting on your teeth, follow each alcoholic beverage with a glass of water to rinse away the harmful by-products. Wait about 30 minutes to brush your teeth, as using anything abrasive on softened enamel can exacerbate the problem

Sugars — All alcohol contains sugar, but rum, cognac, and liqueurs, are particularly sugary. These sugars coat your teeth, feed plaque bacteria, and hasten the process of decay. Combined with the weakened enamel caused by acidity, alcohol packs a double-punch when it comes to harming your teeth. Drink a glass of water after each beverage to minimize the amount of sugar that sits on your teeth.

Staining — If you enjoy red wine or other highly pigmented alcoholic beverages, you’ve got your work cut out for you. Weakened tooth enamel is porous, allowing the rich berry color of wine to penetrate and stain your teeth, taking them from “pearly white” to “dingy.” Rinse with water after each drink to minimize the amount of pigment that is absorbed by the enamel.

Dehydration — You’re probably thinking, “How can booze dehydrate me when I’m drinking a glass of water after each serving?” To that, we say “Touché.” The problem with dehydration is that it causes your body to reduce the production of saliva, which is nature’s way of cleaning your teeth. Drink lots and lots of water before, during, and after your social occasion to make sure your body stays hydrated so it can do its job.

Whether your holiday celebrations consist of wild parties or quiet nights at home in front of the television, we wish you all a wonderful and joyous season. If you live in Wayne, Pennsylvania or the surrounding areas, we’d love to help you have the smile you’ve always wanted.

YOUR TOP-RATED & NEW FAVORITE DENTIST IN WAYNE, PENNSYLVANIA...

The folks at Wayne Dental Care are fantastic. They have a friendly staff who are always welcoming, fantastic doctors (I've been a longtime patient of Dr. Handel) that make long and tedious procedures much easier to tolerate. From cleaning to implants, this is a terrific place. They are also fantastic about dealing with emergencies. I highly recommend.

I have received great care here over the past 14 years, both preventative and emergency. The team is very professional and caring. Most recently, Dr. Brenner made time for me on an emergency basis to fix a broken tooth. He did a great job, and I left feeling 100 percent better than when I arrived.

I've been a patient at Wayne Dental Care for over ten years, and several of my family members are patients as well. The dental hygienists and front desk staff are terrific, friendly and helpful. I am always provided with a comprehensive written treatment plan for anything not covered by insurance, so I understand my costs. I always feel welcomed when I come in the front door!

Accommodated my very fluctuating schedule and paid close attention to details of recommended services. Pre-checked recommended services for coverage and priced out in advance. Also discussed claiming as much in services as possible within the calendar year in order to take advantage of my annual benefit allowance. Very Satisfied with quality of service and attention to detail.
