The Dental Download with Kellie...

The kids are on summer break and that means summer snacking! Its important to know what to stay away from this summer in order to avoid a possible dental emergency....

-Sticky candies and sweets: 
If you eat sweets, go for those that clear out of your mouth quickly. So thumbs down for lollipops, caramels, and cough drops that have refined sugar.

-Starchy foods that can get stuck in your mouth
Soft breads and potato chips, for instance, can get trapped between your teeth. 

-Carbonated soft drinks
These drinks are the leading source of added sugar among kids and teens. They are loaded with sugar. And most soft drinks have phosphoric and citric acids that wear away tooth enamel.
Substances that dry out your mouth. These include alcohol and many medicines. If medicines are the cause, talk with us about getting a fluoride rinse, or a fluoride gel for brushing your teeth.

Your Trusted Dental Hygienist,
Why Go to the Dentist During the Summer?

There are a number of reasons why someone might prefer to visit the dentist during the summer months, including: 

1. Convenience:
During the summer, busy schedules tend to lighten up. Because kids are out of school, it’s much easier for parents to make appointments that fit their schedules. Summer also provides a nice window where parents can schedule dental appointments before the pre-school rush of August and September.
2. Less disruptive:
Because it can come with considerable recovery time, dentistry can be especially disruptive during the winter months when young people maintain very busy schedules. Summer is a great time for high school and college students to get their dental check up. This allows them not having to worry about falling behind in school due to missed classes.
3. More time to adjust:
The start of summer is also a great time for kids to get braces or clean aligners, since they have an opportunity to cope with physical and aesthetic changes. Many times, kids may need time to adjust to the feel and appearance of braces. Summer gives them a chance to do that before being thrust back into a school environment.
4. More value:
Since most insurance benefits dont roll over at the beginning of the year, it’s important to take advantage of your benefits before they expire. So, the summer is a great time to maximize your dental benefits. Summer provides an excellent opportunity to do this, so you won’t have to worry losing them at the end of the year.
5. A brighter smile:
A popular time for barbecues, weddings, vacations and other social engagements, summer puts the spotlight on your smile. Professional whitening treatments can help you put your best foot forward by giving you brighter, whiter teeth. Since some people require multiple treatments, it’s generally best to schedule a whitening consultation during the earliest part of the summer, so you can get the smile you want in time for your summer activities and events.
