Sunshine, warmer weather, greener grass, and setting our clocks forward an hour can only mean one thing here in Central Indiana: it’s Spring Break Time! Sounds great, right? Let’s just not confuse a much-needed vacation for our bodies and minds with a vacation for our teeth. Simply stated, your vacation is not the time to neglect your teeth. Your overall oral health shouldn’t take a break!
That being said, we’d like to offer up a few spring break dental care tips you should know and consider while on vacation.
- Drink plenty of water. Besides the obvious benefits of hydration, drinking water throughout the day will reduce the buildup of plaque on your teeth.
- Avoid sugary drinks. High sugar drinks such as soda erode the enamel on your teeth.
- Pack your oral health essentials with you. Bring healthy snacks (such as apples) that act as a cleanser for your teeth. Carry travel-size toothbrushes and mouthwash for road trips.
Whatever your plans are this spring break, remember to keep up with your dental care. Spring break can be a great time of relaxation and rejuvenation, but it’s not the time to give your teeth a break! If you would like to schedule an appointment before your break, give us a call.
The staff at Southport Dental is dedicated to providing you and your family the highest quality dental care.
