Summer Dental Health Pt. 2

Getting together with friends and family can be a lot of fun, especially when the weather is nice! You probably don’t think much about your guest’s dental health, but there are a couple of things you can do to help keep everyone’s mouth healthy. Our team has a couple of simple suggestions you can use at your next event or party:

  • Keep your drinks cold by storing them in a cooler filled with ice rather than putting ice cubes in drinks. Chewing on ice is one of the worst things you can do to your teeth.
  • Make sure your guests have plenty of water to stay hydrated and wash away any harmful bacteria in their mouth.
  • Keep the snacks on the healthier side by buying some vegetable trays and fruit.
  • Instead of using toothpicks, purchase dental picks. Toothpicks have the possibility of poking your gums.

If you’re in the Streetsboro, OH area and need a dental check-up or have any questions, we welcome you to schedule an appointment with Layman, Shirman & Associates today!
