Lights, Fun, Crackers, Rangoli and of course Sweets. Diwali is incomplete without sweets. During Diwali, the whole house is filled with the aroma of different types of sweets. And then it becomes impossible to resist having sweets.
You don’t need to suppress your sweet craving during Diwali. But you do need to take the following care to have a bright and cavity free Diwali.
BRUSH BRUSH BRUSH
While enjoying Diwali with friends and family, don’t forget about your teeth. They are going to be working extra hard for you during Diwali when you have Diwali delicacies. So they do deserve some special love and care. Brush your teeth properly twice daily so that they don’t give you any trouble.
Along with brushing, flossing is equally important. Food often accumulates in between teeth. Flossing is the only way to get rid of it. If you haven't been flossing, start it on the auspicious occasion of Diwali.
Keep yourself hydrated when you eat more sweets. It helps with digestion and also helps to flush out any food that is stuck in between teeth.
IT’S SWEET TIME
During Diwali, after having a delicious meal when your heart says ‘Kuch Meetha Ho Jay?’, listen to your heart! Post meal is the perfect time to have that piece of Kaju Katli you have been eyeing since morning. As you are already full, you tend to have less sweets after a meal. Also this makes sure that you rinse after having sweets.
VISIT TO THE DENTIST
Have a regular dental check up before Diwali so that you can enjoy Diwali pain free. If you haven’t visited your dentist yet, don’t worry. Schedule a dental visit after Diwali so that you are sure that Diwali sweets and all delicacies haven’t affected your dental health.
Let’s all have a Happy Cavity-Free Diwali!!
