Summer Lovin’ had me no plaque? What do you think about when you hear the words “Summer Lovin'”?
Do you go back to when you were a teen and your first love? How about a Summer vaca at the beach with a loved one? What about the word we all dread at the dentist’s office???? PLAQUE!
YES PLAQUE! I know the last thing we want to relate Summer to is the dentist, however, plaque is like one of those things we are always at odds with and trying to keep at bay!
The Great Expressions Dental Centers (GEDC), wanted to share a few simple and easy tips with you to help keep plaque at “bay” and to help keep your mouth healthy while you are enjoying the lovely Summer season!
Summer Lovin’ Had Me No Plaque Tips:
Tip 1: When at a backyard BBQ, bring a cheese tray so you know you’ll have something healthy to nibble on! Cheese is not only healthy for you, but it’s also tasty and the calcium and phosphates help neutralize plaque acid, which ultimately reduces cavities.
Tip 2: While camping, it’s hard to stay away from the s’mores and sweets. Be sure to drink a lot of water and brush and floss when you’re done. Water helps wash away food debris and keeps your saliva levels high. Saliva is your mouths best defense against tooth decay because the proteins and minerals counteract enamel-eating acids.
Tip 3: Taking a trip to the beach? Pack simple snacks, like apples, almonds, and carrots. Fruits and veggies are high in fiber and produce salvia, which rinses away bacteria and food particles. Almonds are also great for your teeth because they are a good source of calcium and protein, but low in sugar.
Have a great Summer!
