5 tips for taking care of your teeth during summer vacation!

It’s summer! Often it also means a lot of fun with the return of well-deserved vacations, exciting trips, organized activities and evenings with friends by the fire.

On the other hand, while we enjoy these moments, the heat and the sun, it is essential not to neglect the health of our teeth and our oral hygiene. Here are some tips to help you maintain excellent oral health and protect your teeth all summer long.

1. Don’t drop your routine!

Wherever you go on your vacation, don’t forget to bring a travel kit with a toothbrush, dental floss and toothpaste. Try to maintain your good habits by brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily.

While on vacation, it may be tempting to skip these steps, but they’re still important since it could lead to plaque buildup and increase the risk of cavities.


2. Stay hydrated

Hot days can cause you to sweat more and lose hydration. A dry mouth is more likely to develop cavities and gum disease because it does not produce enough saliva to neutralize acids and remove food particles.

Drink plenty of water throughout the day to help keep your body and mouth hydrated.


3. Watch out for sweet snacks and drinks

Ice cream, popsicles, soft drinks and other sweet snacks are tempting on summer days! However, when consumed regularly, they can be harmful to your teeth. Sweets increase the risk of cavities, while acidic drinks can erode your tooth enamel.

Instead, opt for healthier snacks like fresh fruit, which are both delicious and good for your oral health! If you drink acidic or sugary drinks, use a straw to minimize contact with your teeth and don’t forget to brush your teeth afterwards.


4. Protect your teeth during sports activities

Summer vacation often gives you the opportunity to practice outdoor sports or recreational activities. If you participate in contact sports or risky activities, remember to protect your teeth.

Wear a mouthpiece to prevent dental injuries that can be caused by impacts or falls. It’s a simple investment that can save you a lot of problems in the long run!
