The summer season is always an unbelievably busy time, and it needs to be cherished. But during summer, life can get so hectic with parties, barbecues, family reunions, and vacations with friends that one can easily forget about dental hygiene. But, if one follows these simple steps, your smiles can stay clean and bright for your next set of summer vacation photos photos!
Always drink to your health. If one desires a bright smile, they should avoid drinking soda, black tea, coffee and red wine, which can stain the teeth. In case if one still drinks them, it is best to rinse your mouth with water immediately after consuming these beverages to avoid staining.
Come summer holidays, and all you want is a tray full of fresh-baked cookies and brownies, one should strive to fill most of the plate with fruits and veggies instead. This will help satisfy your sweet tooth while ensuring you also get your dose of vitamin A and other minerals that strengthen your enamel.
Gum is the best thing to munch on after lunch, especially sugarless gum. It helps prevent snacking and produces extra saliva to quickly remove bacteria that lead to plaque formation. One can also buy a gum which contains xylitol, a natural sugar alcohol that helps prevent tooth decay.
Tooth whitening is not some popular fad. It can deliver some satisfying results. If you are scared of getting tooth whitening treatment, then speak with your dentist. They can provide you with valuable advice on how professional teeth whitening is more effective than what you do at home.
Water is a magical drink which helps keep bad breath under control because it washes away bacteria and food particles, the main cause of bad breath. It also helps to avoid “dry mouth”, by staying well-hydrated. Therefore, one should drink plenty of water regardless of any season.
