As summer steadily approaches, we are excited for the warm weather and outdoor activities. Even in the midst of all our summer activities, we can’t forget the importance of oral health. This month, follow along with us as we share with you 5 summer tips for healthy teeth!
Tip #1: Drink Water
For most, this sounds simple. Our bodies are made up of 60% water. With temperatures rising, it’s good to replenish the water that we are sweating out; but water is actually really good for our teeth, too. First, it fights against dry mouth. When your saliva runs low, you’re more at risk for tooth decay. Drinking water is the best solution to dry mouth. Drinking water also helps to keep your mouth clean with every sip. It helps to wash away bacteria that could lead to cavities. The takeaway from all this? Drink water this summer.
