Do you want to prevent dental issues this summer? If so, you need to take good care of your smile. To help you do so, Dr. Meredith McClay and our dental team have some helpful tips for you!

First, regularly clean your smile by keeping up on oral hygiene. All you need to do is brush your teeth twice a day, floss your teeth once a day, and rinse your mouth daily. It’s also very important to visit Dr. Meredith McClay for your professional dental cleaning and exam appointments. Doing things can help you avoid dangerous and painful dental issues this summer, like tooth decay, gum disease, and enamel erosion.

Second, wear a mouthguard while you play high-contact sports or activities. This can help you protect your smile when hard objects hit your mouth. If you don’t wear a mouthguard, there is a chance those objects can chip, fracture, and even knock out a tooth.

Third, care for your smile while you are on the road. We all know summer is a great time to leave the nest and go on our favorite vacations. However, just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean you should stop caring for your smile. So, it’s important to pack your oral hygiene cleaning tools and use them regularly.
