If you want to maintain a strong and healthy smile this summer, then you need to do the best you can to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape. Fortunately, Dr. Calvin L. Garland and our dental team have the tips you need to do just that!

Tip No. 1: Clean your teeth and gums by keeping up on oral hygiene. Doing so should include brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing your teeth once a day, and rinsing your mouth daily. You also need to visit our dental team for your professional cleaning and exam appointments. Cleaning your smile can help you avoid dental issues this summer, which means you won’t need to worry about painful cavities and inconvenient tooth sensitivity.

Tip No. 2: Wear a mouthguard while you are out and about, especially if you play high-contact sports or activities. When you participate in these things, there is a high chance a hard, forceful object can hit your mouth and injure your teeth and gums. Wearing a mouthguard can protect your oral cavity.

Tip. No. 3: Care for your smile when you’re away from home. Even though you’re on vacation, you still need to keep your chompers in tip-top shape. This means you need to remember to pack your oral hygiene tools and use them regularly. While you’re on the road, put a toothbrush cover over your toothbrush so the bristles don’t get matted or squished while it’s in your bag.
