Fun in the Summer Sun

It is finally summer, and we hope you are all enjoying summer vacation. As you soak up the sunshine though, we don’t want you to forget about your oral or overall health.

Summer is a great time to take care of all of your doctors’ appointments, especially your dental check-up or to take care of that procedure you’ve been putting off. If you call now at the start of summer, it should be easy to find a convenient time that works for you and your teeth.

Summer is also a time for sugar popsicles, delicious candy, and sticky treats. We love these treats as much as anyone, but don’t forget about your teeth. As always, moderation is key. Make sure to spread out the love and snack on your delicious treats all summer long a little bit at a time.

If you do snack on these treats, also make sure that you are practicing good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth after and frequently flossing. If you can feel something getting stuck in your teeth, make sure to work to get it out!

Finally, our last summer tip is to hydrate, but not chew ice. Chewing ice is bad for your teeth and can end you up in the dentist office instead of the beach. In the heat, you will need lots of water to keep from getting heat exhaustion, so carry a water bottle with you. Make sure you are wearing sunblock to protect from those UV rays too!
