Whether you’re a parent, planning a vacation or just spending time with friends and family, make sure you and your families mouth remain healthy.
During the summer, many families pack up their suitcases and take a vacation. Depending on the size of your family, the packing process may be a little overwhelming. After you get all your clothes together, don’t forget about your toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, and anything else you may need to care for your teeth.
If you’re a parent, not only do you need to care for your mouth, but your children also need some help keeping up with their dental hygiene. If your kids stay at home during the summer, keep the sugary foods and drinks to a minimum and replace them with mouth-healthy snacks.
Just like every other time of the year, you need to practice proper dental hygiene and schedule trips to the dentist. If you’re going on vacation, it may be a good idea to schedule a trip to the dentist before leaving. You also need to remember to brush and floss each day. It can be easy to stay out late and head right to bed, but always remember to brush your teeth before going to sleep.
