Welcome to our December newsletter. This month we're taking a look at how chocolate could be better for your teeth than other treats, how you can save money this Christmas, and why you should consider getting your children in for an appointment over the holidays. But first, we'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Chocolate Treats Over Christmas
Christmas is a notorious time of year for indulging in chocolates, sweets and desserts. One of the most popular delights is often chocolate with Britain being one of Europe's biggest chocolate consumers.
What may come as a surprise to you however, is that chocolate is one of the better treats you can have at Christmas. Its actually sugary sweets and lollies that cause much more damage to your teeth. Dark chocolate specifically, actually helps to prevent tooth decay and strengthen enamel.
Unfortunately the same can't be said for milk chocolate, but this doesn't mean you can't enjoy some over Christmas. It's by no means the most detrimental treat you can eat, and with a good cleaning regime and a sprinkling of moderation, your teeth should be fine.

Kerry, our orthodontist at Selly Oak, is offering free tooth whitening when you sign up for Invisalign treatment. This means you can have straighter, whiter teeth without the look of traditional braces. This offer is only available until 31/12/2018.

Dental Appointments for Your Children Over the Holidays
Finding time to get your child to the dentist can be difficult, but it is very important to ensure they have good dental hygiene as they're growing up. Studies have shown that children who are taught good dental hygiene, are more than likely to carry on those good habits into adulthood, meaning they experience less dental problems.
Additionally, booking an appointment during the Christmas break means you can avoid taking your children out of their education. This means they don't miss vital learning.
Book your child in for their appointment over this Christmas period at your local Midlands Smile Centres.
