Christmas for most people is a time to overindulge. We don’t want to
stop your fun, we just want to give you a few tips and tricks to help

Use the bottle opener!
Enamel may be the strongest part of the human body, but teeth are NOT made for cracking open beers. Teeth are not tools and using them for opening bottles etc, does harm to them. If you don’t have a bottle opener… Put it on your Christmas wish list!
Frequency not quantity!
It is fine to have sugar sometimes, but not constantly as our mouths need a rest. Try to reduce the frequency that you are eating sugary foods, have them with meals, or all at once instead of spreading them out throughout the day (I’m not saying to eat all the Quality Street in one sitting…)
Have a great Christmas and make sure to see us in the New Year!
Merry Christmas from all at Spit Road! J
