Dr Yoon’s Tips for Keeping your Teeth Healthy This Summer

 

Try to avoid those sugary drinks and snacks!

Summer is the time for cookouts which means plenty of delicious food and drinks to go around!  Sodas, sport drinks, popsicles, and other cavity-causing foods are all around this time of year.  Dr. Yoon recommends that you do your best to maintain a healthy, balanced diet with lots of fruits, vegetables, and plenty of water to avoid unnecessary visits to your favorite North Andover dentist

Don’t forget your brush and floss!

Always remember to bring your toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss when going on a trip.  Especially when going camping or to a sleep-away camp where it may be hard to get your hands on a new one.  Our home care kits are perfect for travel!

Protect Your Teeth When Playing Sports!

Summer is a great time for sports like soccer, frisbee, tennis, lacrosse, swimming and diving and much more.  A mouthguard not only protects teeth from the accidental elbow, ball, stick, or racket, but can also protect the lips, cheeks and jaws from some injuries as well.  It an injury occurs make sure to get in touch with us asap!

Have a great summer!
