Caution: The Worst Holiday Food & Drink Offenders

Eat, drink and be merry—with a few constraints (not too many, we promise).

Below are a few of the holiday fare you should avoid for the sake of your smile.

1. Eggnog (And Other Seasonal Cocktails)

Neither alcohol nor super sweet drinks are terrific for your oral health, so mixing these together into one makes for an especially questionable end-result.

2. Peanut Brittle

A sticky, hard candy that is difficult to bite into? Pass.

3. Candy Canes

Not only are these loaded with sugar, biting into these also puts you at risk for dental emergencies, like cracked or broken teeth.

5. Popcorn

We know, we know. We harp on this one a lot. But leave these on the decorative strands.

Okay, now you go can off and enjoy the best of what this time of year has to offer!
