A Dental Guide on How to Take Care of Your Teeth During Diwali

Diwali is not just the festival of lights. It is also about those celebratory vibes, get-together parties, gifts, firecrackers, and sweets, of course. With the pandemic restrictions gradually easing out, people are all the more excited to celebrate Diwali with the same pomp and enthusiasm as it used to be. They have started booking appointments to salons to get the best hair and skin makeover. However, besides skin and hair, you must also pay attention to your daily teeth care.

Teeth Care during Diwali

To start with, let us discuss how you can take care of your teeth during Diwali and even after the festivities.
  1. Brush twice a day as every toothpaste advertisement and dentist suggest.
  2. Floss regularly so that there are no food particles trapped between the teeth.
  3. Use mouthwash like Chlorhexidine Gluconate or other best oral hygiene products as given by your dentist. Good oral health ensures healthy gums and teeth while preventing halitosis (bad smell from the mouth).
  4. Avoid drinking carbonated soft drinks as they may cause erosion of the tooth enamel, leading to sensitive teeth.
  5. Too many chocolates, sweets, and drinking cold water can cause dental problems, so it is best to avoid it.
  6. Regular dental check-ups every six months are highly recommended. This also applies if you have a kid at home. (The first dental visit should be when a kid turns six months old)
  7. Look for any dark spots or black discolouration on the teeth. If any such problem is noticed, visit the dentist as soon as possible.
  8. If you feel that your teeth are not aligned properly, a dentist can help you out with the suitable treatment of Clear Aligners or Dental Braces.

Now, let’s go even deeper into the subject and see how a dentist can take good care of your teeth.

  • Prophylactic Dental Check-up before Diwali

Just like you clean your home during Diwali, your teeth might also need some cleaning and washing.

People often take dental health and oral hygiene lightly and visit a dentist only when they experience a toothache or other serious symptoms like headache, swelling, and difficulty in chewing.

It is advisable to consult a dentist before Diwali to ensure good oral health.

It would help if you got a complete dental check-up to ensure that you have healthy gums and that your teeth are free from decay.

  • Why should you visit a dentist before Diwali?

Eating too many sweets during Diwali can lead to sensitivity in teeth and spoil all the fun. Therefore, you must get your teeth cleaned before Diwali so that you can enjoy the festival to the fullest.

The dentist might also prescribe a toothpaste-like Thermoseal RA or Sensodyne to relieve sensitivity. Rather than taking over-the-counter medications, it is always better to seek professional help.

Moreover, the dentist will also check for any decay (caries) and help you prevent it right at the initial stage. If there are any deep caries, the dentist will save your teeth with Root Canal Treatment rather than removing the teeth.

Many people have a complaint of food lodgment, but they keep overlooking it. A timely visit to the dental clinic can rule out the possibility of any serious dental problem causing it.

You can even get your Smile Redesigned with composite Dental Veneers or tooth-coloured filling.

  • Importance of visiting a dentist after Diwali

If you have relished too many sweets during Diwali, you strongly recommend visiting a dentist once the festivities are over. You might need a dental check-up to ensure that your teeth are in the pink of their health. Based on the oral health score, the dentist would suggest the kind of treatment you need.  They will also guide you on how to keep your teeth clean and strong.

Moreover, if you have visited the dentist before Diwali, it is good to follow up with them even after Diwali.

If you keep all these tips and advice in mind, you will surely have a more vibrant smile this Diwali.
