Welcome to our oral health blog!
You really can’t beat summer in Texas. This is the season to hang out with friends and family at such locales as the Houston Raceway, Pirates Bay Water Park, Baytown Nature Center, anyone’s backyard, etc.
But with so much to do, you’ll want to make sure you still pay attention to your oral health needs!
To help you keep things on track, the team here at Dynamic Dental Solutions has come up with some tips for keeping your mouth clean and your smile looking great.
Please keep reading, and then follow up with one of our staff members to schedule your next preventive dental appointment in our Baytown, TX office.
Don’t Pack Sugar Snacks
In this heat, a nice cold can of Pepsi or a frozen treat is a real pleasure for some of us, especially when you are hanging by the water, or out on the road. But these options won’t be good for your smile because all that sugar will feed the bacteria that produce decay.
Hydrate Your Body
Drinking water will do your body lots of good. And this will help keep your breath fresh too. That’s because water allows you to make enough saliva to destroy the bad-breath-causing bacteria strains.
Even on vacation, you should still be brushing your teeth for 2 minutes or more, at least twice each day. This will help keep cavities and disease from taking over, and it will leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean.
Simply brushing your teeth is never going to get the job done. To remove the plaque and tartar that remains between your teeth and in other hard to reach places, dental floss is your best bet.
Rinse With Mouthwash
There are fluoride mouthwashes available at every supermarket in Texas that can deliver added oral health benefits. Be sure to check the labels for age-appropriate guidelines.
Visit Dynamic Dental Solutions
We are here to be your partner in oral health, but we can’t really do our part if you seldom come to see us. There are good reasons for doing so every 6 months. You see, the professional teeth cleanings we offer can take care of any bacteria, tartar, or plaque that remains after your efforts at home, and is waiting to make trouble for you. And our complete exams will give you an idea of what is unfolding in your mouth. Make no mistake, early detection and treatment is always the easier way to go!
We also offer additional prevention techniques like fluoride treatments and dental sealants. Why not take advantage of all we have to offer?
