Have a Beautiful Smile This Christmas


There's something about Christmas that creates a heart-warming feeling, and with this Yuletide season everybody is getting ready and heat-up with the much awaited festivity. This season is that time of the year for joy and happiness. Maybe this will be the moment to boast and flash your dazzling smile! But on the contrary, this is also a time for grandiose foods and because indeed, it is a grandiose occasion. Festive moments turn thoughts into social gatherings. Party galore, family lunches and wow, the much-awaited posing for photographs as you celebrate with relatives and friends. Hugs and kisses, maybe under the traditional Christmas tree.. Oh, don't forget "underneath the mistletoe tonight".

Nonetheless, if you feel embarrassed about your smile or suffer from bad breath, these events might fill you with an alarming message. And that is, not to indulge yourself with too much sugar and too much alcohol as well. Winding up your oral hygiene routine is the worst you can do during the holidays. With all the chocolates, sugary foods, alcohol and drinks consumed over this season, teeth take much bit of a bang.

Dental care is important and should be taken with much consideration especially this Yuletide season. We need to maintain and keep up with our oral hygiene. Be extra cautious and vigilant. Bear in mind that teeth are under attack for up to one hour after eating and drinking, unless you don't really want your teeth to get the chance to recover.

Don't let a “Grinch” moment ruined your Christmas. Try and make sure your teeth don't experience that wistful effect. After all, it's never too late to get your teeth sparkle and let yourself smile stunningly. Otherwise, make your dental health and your dream dental make-over be on top of your New Year's resolution!

Dental Stem Cell Research

Dental professionals are very excited because scientists have found out that our teeth contain valuable stem cells that, if properly stored, could potentially hold the cure to a number of diseases, like Parkinson's, diabetes, and cancer, and with the future potential to help in spinal cord injuries, as well.


Stem cell research has been immersed in controversy over the years for many reasons, with the main issues including the following:
  • Embryonic stem cells carry technical and ethical challenges.
  • Bone marrow stem cells are very painful to collect.
  • Cord blood  stem cells can only be harvested at birth.
