Keeping a Healthy Mouth This Summer Pt. 2

Have you been enjoying your summer so far? We hope it’s going well!

You’re probably aware that proper brushing and flossing and regular trips to the dentist are important for keeping a healthy mouth. However, during the summer we tend to have friends and family over on a beautiful day. The next time your guests head over to your house, be sure to keep these simple dental health tips in mind:

  • Avoid using toothpicks and, instead, use dental picks which are much safer for your teeth and gums.
  • Keep your drinks cool by using an ice-filled cooler. A lot of people have the harmful habit of chewing on ice cubes which is harmful to our teeth.
  • Stay hydrated and wash away bacteria from your mouth by drinking plenty of water.
  • Choose mouth-healthy snacks compared to sugary snacks.

If you’re in the Littleton, CO area and need a dental check-up or have any questions, we welcome you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Nichols today!
