Even though school is out for the summer, that doesn’t mean you can stop caring for your smile. In fact, you need to do your best to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape. To help you do so, Dr. Michael Lemme and our dental team have some helpful tips and recommendations for you.

The first thing you need to do is keep up on oral hygiene. It’s best to brush your teeth every morning and every night with a toothbrush that has soft bristles. It’s also best to floss your smile at least once a day. If possible, finish the cleaning job with mouthwash. It’s also important to visit your dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and checkup.

The second thing you need to do is wear a mouthguard when you participate in activities that can threaten your smile, like contact sports or even extreme sports. It’s best to wear a mouthguard because it can protect your teeth when hard, forceful objects hit them.

The third thing you need to do is take care of your smile while you’re traveling. Don’t forget to pack your oral hygiene tools in your suitcase. This can help you avoid dental issues while you’re on the road.

If you use our tips, there is a high chance you can maintain a top-notch smile and oral health.
