Care For Your Teeth This Summer With These Helpful Tips
We are thrilled that summer is here! All of the children are out of school, the hot weather has arrived, and the schedules are lighter. We have loved hearing about all of your wonderful plans for this season. We want to remind you of the importance of continuing to care for your oral health. We would hate for you to have an amazing summer and start the fall with a dental emergency or oral health problem.
Maintain Your Oral Hygiene Routine
- We know that it can be tempting to avoid doing your full oral hygiene routine when you are exhausted after a long summer day. No matter how tired you may be, it is always important to brush and floss your teeth. You would be surprised at how quickly decay can develop, not to mention that starting this bad habit can be tempting to continue. It is also extremely important to ensure your children continue brushing and flossing during the summer.
Schedule Any Necessary Appointments
- If you or a loved one are in need of a routine hygiene examination or recommended treatment, the summer is the best time to come to our office. While your schedule is a little lighter, it is a great idea to take advantage before the hustle and bustle of the fall begins.
Plan for a Vacation
- If you have a vacation planned for this summer, we highly suggest packing any oral hygiene materials you may need. This is especially important if you have hardware for an oral health condition or are wearing any form of clear aligners. When you are on vacation, the last thing you want to worry about is finding a place to purchase toothbrushes and toothpaste. If you have hardware that is left behind, it can negatively impact your treatment.
If you or a loved one are in need of a hygiene examination, be sure to contact our office, which is located in Wellington, FL, to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon and hope you have an amazing summer.
