Cocktail Cautions: What to Watch Out For

Sugar-Laden Temptations:

The land of candy-cane cocktails may seem tempting, but drinks like margaritas and daiquiris, loaded with sugars, can be a one-way ticket to tooth decay.

Wine Wisdom:

While a glass of red wine may boast health benefits, excessive consumption can lead to staining and enamel erosion. Remember to rinse between sips.

Citrus Caution:

Cocktails with citrus can be acidic, contributing to enamel erosion. Consume in moderation and rinse with water to neutralize acidity.

Soda Strikes:

Say no to regular sodas in your mixers. Opt for sugar-free alternatives or sparkling water to minimize sugar content and acidity.

Marshmallow Moderation:

Hot cocoa is delightful, but excessive sugar and sticky marshmallows can spell trouble for your teeth. Consider sugar-free options or go easy on the marshmallow topping.
