Summer Survival Guide

Preventative Dentistry Beausejour Manitoba

 
Summertime, and the living’s easy! Just make sure that easy living doesn’t compromise your dental health. Here are a few things to keep in mind when keeping yourself happy and healthy this summer season: 
 
Chlorinated pool water is acidic, and believe it or not, can actually damage your teeth! It’s hard to imagine not swallowing a little pool water when you’re splashing around and having fun, but take the time to rinse your mouth out with plain, filtered water afterwards. Not only will it help neutralize some of that lingering acid, but will also help keep you hydrated!
 
Also consider some of the dental injuries that could result from some careless slip-ups and fall-downs around the pool this summer. Remember, walk, don’t run, on slippery pool perimeters, and remind everyone to be attentive to their surroundings when they’re playing in and around the pool.
 
Snacks and summer munchies will keep you fueled for all your summer fun! It’s important to be mindful of the kinds of food you’re consuming, as well as remembering you good oral cleaning habits in between those snack breaks. Sugarless gum is a great way to neutralize acid in the mouth that’s caused from frequent snacking, and brushing and flossing regularly are the best way to ensure you stay cavity-free all summer!
 
Regular dental check-ups are the only way to ensure your mouth is in its best shape, and to be sure there are no cavities or other dangers lurking in the deepest corners of those bright smiles. Don’t skip summer dental check-ups because of summer vacation plans or other activities - you deserve the best dental care that Beausejour Manitoba has to offer, so be sure to schedule your summer dental appointments with Beausejour Dental Centre.

Give Your Valentine a Healthy Smile
and some Clean Kisses to Love this February!

Eye-dry kisses, soft, shy kisses, “Oh hi!” kisses, bye-bye kisses: whatever the occasion, nobody wants to be turned down as they offer a juicy kiss this Valentine’s day! Make sure this doesn’t happen to you by keeping your oral health in top shape, even in the face of some holiday sweet-tooth satisfaction.

Don’t Let Your Kisses be Sour- Just Sweet!

Most candies are packed with sugars that can quickly destroy your teeth! The worst offenders of this nasty attack are sour candies, full of citric acids that rapidly destroy your tooth enamel. It’s best to avoid sour candies, from gummies that stick in your teeth easily to hard sour candies that release acid into your mouth continuously for an extended period of time, don’t let your kisses be sour for your Valentine this year!

Crack Down on Sweets that are Tough on Your Teeth

Did you know that Americans consume around 58 million pounds of chocolate between February 1st and February 14th?! That’s a lot of cavities waiting to happen. Consider giving your sweetheart something sweet from the heart this year, instead of giving into the sugar- craze the grocery stores might lead you to “buy” in to.

 

Remember that You’re Someone Special Too

Loving yourself on Valentine’s Day and every other day of the year means taking great care of yourself each and every day- and that includes your oral health! By brushing at least twice a day, and remembering to floss daily, you can keep your oral health in loveable condition for yourself and for others! Don’t forget that the healthier you eat by remembering your fruits, veggies, lean proteins, and complex carbohydrates, the sweeter your kisses will be! Nutrition affects your body’s overall function as well as your oral health, and the best way you can spoil yourself is to maintain daily healthy habits.

You can love your healthy teeth, and your Valentine can love your sweet kisses this February 14th!

We would LOVE to see you soon! Call 204.268.1782 today to schedule your next appointment with Beausejour Dental Centre
