There is nothing more satisfying than jumping into a cool swimming pool on a hot summer’s day. While the rippling water may be calling your name, if the pool has higher than normal acid content, it can damage your teeth.
Pool chlorine and pH levels need to be monitored on a weekly basis. Too much chlorination can negatively affect your dental health and can even lead to erosion of dental enamel.
To protect your dental health, maintain regular dental appointments. Your dentist/hygienist will monitor the health of your teeth and a fluoride treatment can help to safeguard tooth enamel and even re-calcify it.
Enjoy the rest of your summer, winter will be here before we know it. But while you are outside, swimming in the pool, don’t forget to protect your pearly whites.
