Now that June is here, we are so happy that the summer fun has begun in Syracuse. It’s time to pile on the slatherin’ sauce over at Dino’s while enjoying some tasty blues music! And, in general it’s time to relax a bit!
Just be sure you don’t get lax with your oral hygiene habits! And don’t forget about us. We are here to help you keep your mouth clean and your smile looking great all year long. But it is a partnership! Just so you can be sure that you are doing your part, we’ve come up with a few suggestions for the summer season.
Read on, and then plan to get in-touch with us to set-up your next preventive dental appointment. We can’t wait to see you! Avoid Sugar
A soda pop or sugary snack is tempting, especially when you are on the road. But that won’t be good for you because all that sugar will feed the bacteria that causes cavities. Stay Hydrated
Drinking water will help your general health and wellness. Plus, it can help keep your breath fresh by producing enough saliva to eradicate the bad-breath causing bacteria. Look for water that is fortified with fluoride when you can! Brush With Care
All summer you should still be brushing your teeth for 2 minutes or more, at least twice each day. This will keep cavities and disease at bay, plus it will leave your mouth feeling clean and fresh. Flossing Is Not Optional
Brushing is the least you can do to protect your teeth and gums. Really! Brushing alone is never going to be enough to get the whole job done.
To eradicate the plaque and tartar that remains between your teeth and in other hard to see areas, dental floss will be necessary. Do it every time you brush! Rinse With Fluoride
There are some excellent fluoride mouthwashes available that can bring added oral health benefits. Be sure to check the labels for age-appropriateness. Visit Eastwood Dental Office
Stopping by our dental office every six months will go a long way towards keeping your oral health on-track.
Here’s why: our professional teeth cleanings
can get rid of of any remaining bacteria, tartar, or plaque that wants to wreak havoc in your mouth.
Additionally, our in-depth dental exams will give you a better idea of what is going on in your mouth. Early detection and treatment is always less painful and less expensive.
Plus, we offer more protection than that! We can provide fluoride treatments and dental sealants for children and adults alike. Our hope is that, with these, you may be able to avoid fillings or dental crowns in the future. Start The Summer Off Right!
Avoiding sugar, drinking plenty of water, brushing your teeth, flossing, rinsing with fluoride, and visiting Dr. Laura are the sort of things that will keep you smiling all through the summer season! So will the BBQ at Dino’s, but that’s another story altogether!
