Summertime is nearly here! While summer break is most certainly a time to rest, relax and adventure with family, the disruption in routine can cause some kids (and parents) to let their hygiene fall by the wayside. Keeping up with dental hygiene throughout the summer is important for maintaining good health throughout the year. These tips and tricks are perfect for summer camp adventures, vacations and impromptu sleepovers.
It’s nearly summer – the perfect time to help your teeth shine their very brightest. Healthy, bright teeth give you a confident smile that lights up your entire face. Practicing good oral hygiene is most important for healthy teeth, but did you know there are some basic summer time snacks that are not only healthy but can also help naturally whiten your teeth?
With the return of the sunshine and warmer days, Dentistry for Life also sees an increase in emergency dental visits for children. The most common reason is trauma to the front teeth. Generally, this is a result of a bike crash, a trampoline collision, falling on concrete around a pool (no running, please!) or a sports injury. In most cases, tooth and mouth injuries are not life threatening. Rarely, a child may develop serious complications. However, injuries to the teeth and mouth can also have long-lasting effects on the child’s appearance and self-confidence.
