Summer sun brings summer fun. While the warmer months are perfect for spending time with friends and family, summer holidays can also throw off your regular dental care routine. Here are our top tips to prevent summertime tooth decay:

  1. Keep up your routine- resist the temptation to skip brushing after a late barbecue. If you have kids; help them keep up their routine by brushing alongside them for 2 mins twice a day. Family bonding time and healthy smiles; what’s not to love.
  2. Snack smarter and say no to sugary drinks- As the temperature rises (we hope), it’s common for families to sip and snack during sports days, festivals or nearly any community event. Consider sugary drinks treats to enjoy once in a while, and not often. Instead, Drink water to beat the heat, or milk to accompany meals. And, don’t let summertime grazing damage your smile. Moderation is the magic word!
  3. Schedule your back-to-school dental visit in advance- Avoid the August rush and help ensure you get the appointment time that works best for you.
