Ok confession time, we’ve ALL been guilty at one point or another of doing something that wasn’t great for our teeth. Sometimes we even do things without realising the potential danger it poses to our pearly whites.  At MC Dental we want you to keep your beautiful smile for life, so here’s a round-up of some naughty habits (The good news is, they’re habits that are easy to kick!)

Drink water for healthy teethWhilst most of us are all still in the spirit of making New Years resolutions, MC Dental would like to point out a great website that helps people make the switch from drinking sugary drinks, to quenching their thirst with water. Water is a great choice for your teeth. The rest of your body will love you for making the switch too!

“Rethink Sugary Drink” (http://www.rethinksugarydrink.org.au/) seeks to demystify the sugar content of drinks, which often isn’t immediately clear to consumers in a way that resonates on a real-world level.

"Rethink Sugary Drink" puts the number of teaspoons of sugar in a 600ml bottle of soft drink into frightening perspective: With 16 teaspoons of sugar you’d have to run a staggering 3km to burn it off. Blimey!

Drinking a can of soft drink each day significantly increases the risk of tooth decay and erosion. Simply put, the negatives of consuming sugary drinks stack up way too high and set off alarm bells for long term health.

At MC Dental we’re all about helping you achieve your healthiest, most beautiful smile. We give a big thumbs-up to drinking water.

No, we’re not kidding, -Christmas really isn’t that far away. There’s so much to keep you busy around the end of the year that the last thing you need is a sore tooth.

Before you get caught up in the whirlwind of parties, present-shopping and family organising, make a time to have your teeth checked and professionally cleaned. It’s a wonderful feeling to get on top of any dental issues early so that you can enjoy a relaxing Christmas with the family. -And don’t forget to smile for all those photos!
