The warm weather and opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends bring plenty of reasons to smile. During the summer, it can be easy to neglect your normal oral hygiene routine. If you neglect any step in your regular routine, you increase your risk for a variety of dental health problems that can impact your health and self-confidence. Here are three cosmetic dentistry tips to help you maintain a healthy smile this summer.

Choose Water Over Sugary Drinks

When your mouth is dry, bacterial growth can increase because there is less saliva to clean your teeth and gums. The summer heat may have you wanting to reach for cold juice, soda or alcoholic beverages to quench your thirst. The sugar content in these drinks can quickly accelerate tooth decay to ruin your summer smile and increase the need for cosmetic dentistry work. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water instead. If you drink coffee or tea, rinse your mouth afterward with water to help prevent staining.

Schedule a Professional Cleaning

A thorough cleaning from a cosmetic dentistry professional can give you a significant boost for your summer smile. During this appointment, your dentist can examine your teeth for signs of decay and remove stains for whiter teeth. If you need any dental work done, make an appointment to get it done before issues become worse.

Protect Your Toothbrush When Traveling

Your toothbrush can be at a high risk for harboring bacteria during your summer vacation travels. You may be tempted to throw your toothbrush into your travel bag after you brush. Your luggage is a dark and damp place where bacteria can thrive. Air dry your toothbrush in an upright position and store it in a closed container until you get home or to your next destination.
