While summer is a time for relaxation, don’t neglect your mouth and teeth. What can you do to keep your teeth healthy in summer? If you’re tempted to grab an ice cold soda or a glass of lemonade, you might want to think twice. The combination of acid and sugar in these drinks can harm your teeth. Water, on the other hand, is an excellent way to stay refreshed. Milk is another good choice for keeping teeth strong.

What if you are into sports? Sports drinks are acidic, and many of them have a high sugar content — so they aren’t good for tooth enamel. Again, nothing hydrates like plain water, an option that never damages your teeth.

If you choose a beverage other than water, it’s best to drink it with a meal, and swish your mouth with water afterwards to reduce acidity. This tip applies to all acidic drinks, including fruit juice and diet soda.

The best advice for cooling down on a sizzling summer day – Grab a glass of cold water to keep you hydrated.

And as you enjoy your summer vacation do not miss your dental appointments.
