If you want a beautiful, healthy, and stunning smile this summer so you can feel confident while participating in your many summer activities, then it’s best to take good care of your teeth and gums. If you do the necessary tasks that will help you maintain your oral health, you will be able to reach your smile goals. To help you take good care of your teeth, our team recommends doing the following things:

-Keep up on oral hygiene: Do your best to brush your teeth twice a day, floss your smile once a day, and rinse your mouth daily with mouthwash. As you do these things, use a soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, and antibacterial mouthwash. Also, don’t forget to attend your six-month checkup. Your checkup will help you have the healthy and polished smile you need.

-Wear a mouthguard: As you participate in high-contact activities, it’s best to protect your smile with a mouthguard. If you use a mouthguard, your teeth and gums will be protected from hard blows to the face and you won’t need to worry about having chipped or knocked-out teeth. You can talk to your dentist about your mouthguard options at your next dental appointment.

-Be smart while traveling: As you explore the world this summer, it’s important to pack your oral hygiene tools. Pack your toothbrush in a plastic container so the bristles don’t get squished or flattened. Also, it’s best to pack travel-sized toothpaste and mouthwash if you are traveling on a plane.

You can also consider talking to your dentist, Dr. Rai, about a professional whitening treatment if you’re interested in having a bright and brilliant smile. All you need to do is call us today and talk to a member of our dental team. We are more than happy to help you achieve the strong and beautiful smile you deserve!
