Greetings from all of us at Lancaster Dental, your friendly Kitchener dental office! As we celebrate the joyous occasion of Victoria Day, it’s the perfect time to give your smile some love. Not only will these tips help you sport a radiant smile on Victoria Day, but they’ll also keep your teeth gleaming all summer long.
Hydrate Generously: Summer heat can dry out your mouth, which in turn reduces saliva production. Saliva is nature’s way of cleansing the mouth and inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria. So, hydrate frequently and drink plenty of water to keep your mouth moist and your smile sparkling.
Say ‘Yes’ to Crunchy Veggies: Those crunchy, fresh veggies at your Victoria Day BBQ aren’t just delicious, they’re also natural teeth cleansers! Eating raw carrots, celery, and cucumbers can help scrub away plaque and freshen your breath.
Moderate Sugar Intake: We all love those sweet summer treats, but they aren’t so sweet for our teeth. Excessive sugar can lead to cavities and tooth decay. So, go easy on the sugary drinks and desserts, and always rinse your mouth or brush your teeth after indulging.
Don’t Skip Your Dental Routine: No matter how fun-filled your summer schedule is, make sure not to skip your dental routine. Brush twice a day and floss daily to prevent plaque build-up and maintain your smile’s radiance.
Schedule a Dental Check-up: Regular dental visits are crucial for maintaining oral health. A professional cleaning can help eliminate plaque and tartar that regular brushing can’t. Start your summer off with a check-up and a professional cleaning to ensure your smile is in top shape.
Remember, your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. So, let’s make sure it’s as radiant as the summer sun! At Lancaster Dental, we’re dedicated to helping you achieve and maintain a beautiful, healthy smile. If you have any questions or if you’re due for a check-up, we’re here to help.
To make an appointment, give us a call or visit our website. Don’t let summer slip by without ensuring your smile is at its best. Your radiant summer smile starts at Lancaster Dental.
Happy Victoria Day to you all, and keep smiling!
