The weather is warm, the sun is shining and summer is officially here. With all the fun and activities, we want to make sure that you and your family have healthy teeth all summer and year long. Here are some summertime tips.
Visit the Dentist
The end of school and the beginning of the summer is the perfect time to book a visit to the dentist. This way, the kids (and the rest of the family) will have healthy teeth all summer long. You don’t want a toothache to pop up during a summer vacation.
Stock Up Healthy Snacks
It may be hard to limit snacking when the kids are home, but fresh fruits and vegetables are always a healthy choice. Strawberries and blueberries are a healthier and better option than candy and cookies. Also, enjoy some fluoridated tap water instead of sugary and acidic soft drinks. It’s healthier and readily available.
Daily Brushing and Flossing
During the summer, and throughout the rest of the year, it’s important to remember to brush and floss your teeth every day. Now is the perfect time to replace your toothbrush. When you come in for a dental visit, we’ll happily give you a brand new one!
Summer can be a really fun and exciting time of year. By following these summer oral health tips, you and your family can have a happy and healthy summer season.
