If you’re looking forward to a nap after your holiday feast, don’t forget to brush your teeth before. There’s no shortage of holiday foods that cause cavities. Allowing all that sugar to sit on your teeth for long periods can lead to tooth decay!
Keep your oral health routines strong this holiday season. Keep an eye out for low-sugar alternatives if you encounter these cavity-causing culprits:
Caramel Apples – 73 grams of sugar in one caramel apple
Candy Canes – 14 grams of sugar in on just one candy cane
Cranberry Sauce – 105 grams of sugar per cup
Fruit Cake – 13 grams of sugar per slice
Eggnog – 21.4 grams of sugar per glass
Pecan Pie – 32.2 grams of sugar per slice
Remember to brush after eating these holiday treats to keep your teeth happy and healthy.
