Summer is almost here! If you couldn’t be any happier, then we’d like to help you maintain that reason to smile (a very healthy smile) by offering reminders for your oral health. Luckily, it’s easy to protect your teeth and gums when you’re up for an essential suggestion or two (or three)!
Stay The Course
Unfortunately, if you think of summer as a vacation from your oral health responsibilities, you’ll head into fall with some serious problems! Instead, stay the course with making wise choices, brushing, flossing, and heading in for any required visits, so you have loads of fun without facing smile consequences.
Watch For Tooth Destroyers
When you think of it this way, it becomes much easier to remember to watch out for foods that you don’t necessarily eat the rest of the year but that you tend to fill up on during the summer. Do you frequently have a pitcher of lemonade on hand mid-winter or a bowlful of mixed berries (some of which may have a pit or tiny seeds you weren’t considering) deep into autumn? Simply remain mindful of hazards and do your best to limit them for protected oral health.
Don’t Forget Your Sunscreen
Of course, if you were to wear sunscreen all year round, we would be quite happy to hear it. However, if it’s not something you do regularly, then make sure for the sake of your oral health that you’re making it a habit for the summer. You’ll block out harmful sun rays that can promote sun damage and even oral cancer. Sunscreen on your face and SPF balm on your lips? Always!
