If you want a top-notch smile and oral health this summer, then you need to take proper care of your teeth and gums. Our dentist, Dr. Michael Lemme, is happy to help you keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape this summer while you’re sitting at the pool, traveling and doing other fun summer activities. The tips you need for a healthy smile include:

-Wear a mouthguard: A mouthguard can protect your smile when you play high-contact sports and activities. So, please remember to wear the appliance when you’re active. It can help you avoid knocked-out and broken teeth when you get hit in the face.

-Pack your oral hygiene tools: If you travel often during the summer, it’s important to pack your toothbrush, toothpaste and dental floss. If you travel by plane, remember the liquid weight requirements and only pack a travel-sized toothpaste.

-Attend your dental checkups: If you are due for a checkup this summer, don’t forget about it! Your dental checkups are very important, especially because they can help you prevent cavities and gum disease. So, if you need to set a reminder for yourself, do it!
