We hope you’re enjoying the summer and spending plenty of time outside! A lot of us probably have friends and family over on these beautiful days, but what can be done to keep you and your guests mouth in good shape during your party? Dr. Levine offers some suggestions:
- Replace the toothpicks with dental picks.
- Make sure you have plenty of water available. Water is the best drink for staying hydrated and keep your mouth clean.
- Purchase mouth-healthy snacks over sugary foods and potato chips.
- Keep any drinks cool by storing them in a cooler filled with ice rather than placing ice cubes in the drink. Chewing ice cubes is awful for your teeth!
If you’re in the Olney, MD area and need a dental check-up or have any questions, we welcome you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Levine today!
