Below is a list starting with the foods that you should try to avoid during the celebrations.

Tea
Tea can damage your teeth enamel, so try to avoid an over consumption of tea during the festive season. The tooth enamel is sensitive, and is made up of rods that have catches. Food and drinks can find a resting place in those small pits that can also cause plaque to develop on the surface of the tooth.

Wine
Wine is a popular drink during Christmas, but a lot of consumption can cause problems to your teeth. Wine contains chromogens that produce tooth discoloring pigments and tannins that cause the mouth to dry out and can make teeth sticky. So, limit your wine consumption during the festive season. Try some different drinks as an alternative.

Sweets
Chocolates, candy canes, and caramels are common snacks that people consume during the holiday season. Sugary foodscan cause severe tooth decay. Especially for kids, who are easily tempted by these sugary items, should be given some healthy alternatives to avoid tooth decay at a young age. Make certain strict rules- allow eating these candies in moderation, drink lots of water and floss and brush teeth after eating these snacks.

Drinks
Flavored drinks contain sugar and lots of acid, which causes tooth enamel to erode. They not only stain your teeth but make them weak too. Use a straw when consuming these drinks to minimize their interaction with your teeth.
Here are some solutions to maintain good oral hygiene during the Christmas season.

Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening treatments will help you achieve that perfect smile for Christmas. The treatment will help you get whiter teeth within a few days, and make for a perfect Christmas gift.
Remember to stay consistent with brushing and flossing your teeth to get rid of build up on your teeth and gums.
