As the hot weather approaches, it’s important to make sure you keep your smile healthy. It may not be on your mind amid a heatwave, but you’ll appreciate taking the necessary steps to avoid oral health problems. We wanted to share a few tips to keep in mind:

  1. Eat nutritious foods. What you eat has a big impact on your dental health. Enjoy plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and calcium-rich foods. Having a diet rich in those selections will benefit your oral and overall health.
  2. Maintain good dental habits. Make sure you keep up with good oral routines. Brushing and flossing regularly will keep oral health problems at bay.
