Order Up! National Chip & Dip Day

chips and dip

Got lunch plans? Then consider going out for some Mexican food because it’s National Chip & Dip Day!

Tortilla or corn chips create a buildup of plaque on your teeth. Unfortunately, chips contain high amounts of oils and ingredients that tend to stick to your teeth. If you do go out for chips and dip, drink water or chew a piece of sugarless gum after lunch.

Bad Snacks

Why are all the bad things so good? Sugary foods cause tooth decay. Starchy snacks can also break down into sugars once they’re in your mouth.

Snack Smart on National Chip & Dip Day

Pick a variety of foods like these:

  • Berries
  • Celery
  • Cucumbers
  • Low or non-fat yogurt
  • Low or non-fat cottage cheese
  • Chicken
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Nuts

Choose sugar foods less often for your teeth’s sake. Avoid eating sweets between meals. Eat a variety of low or non-fat foods.

Get a Dental Plan for Regular Cleanings

You can avoid future dental problems by getting regular cleanings and checkups provided with your dental benefits.

However, there are several options to choose from. The premiums, deductibles, and types of coverage can vary, so here are four important steps when you’re shopping around for dental benefits.

  • First, find out if you can get group coverage
  • Secondly, check into individual policies
  • Third, research dentists in your network.
  • Finally, read your policy

The bottom line is to do your homework. If you don’t understand the policy, ask your broker for a brief explanation. The key here is to get the best dental care for you and your family.
