How To Keep Your Smile Healthy During The Summer

The summertime is the perfect time to get everything that you’ve been putting off done, which may also include visiting the dentist. Most dentists understand that it is easy to forget to schedule a dental visit during the school year, however, the summer provides the perfect opportunity to schedule your appointment at your own convenience.

Visit Tryon Family Dentistry, your premier family dental practice serving patients in Cary, Zebulon, and Raleigh, NC. We offer a complete range of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry solutions to suit your budget, dental needs, and smile goals.

1. Visit The Dentist

If you haven’t visited the dentist for your routine dental exam, the summer is a great time to schedule your appointment. In many cases, you won’t need to schedule around your child’s school hours; this is also great for college students because they can schedule their visit around the summer and winter break.

During a routine dental exam, your dentist will perform a thorough dental cleaning and evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw for any signs of dysfunction.

2. Don’t Chew Ice

It’s easy to pop a few cubes of ice in your mouth to stay cool; some people even make a habit of chewing ice all year around. Ice is hard enough to damage your enamel if you’re not careful; this means that chewing ice can lead to chipped, fractured, or cracked teeth.

To stay call, try putting a few cubes of ice in your favorite summer drink.

3. Practice A Healthy Oral Hygiene Routine

It’s easy to forget your toothbrush when traveling. Most hotels will provide a complimentary toothbrush, floss, and toothpaste for you to use during your stay.

Practicing an excellent oral hygiene routine all year around is key to improve your dental health. Be sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss daily, and finish with an antibacterial mouth wash; this process helps remove plaque from the teeth as well as freshen your breath and remove food particles.

“My dental assistant is Gloria, who is always super friendly, masterfully efficient and skilled, and amazing at answering all of my questions and anticipating anything out of the ordinary that Dr. Leo may need for his evaluation. Dr. Leo is my fabulous dentist who is also very friendly, skilled and efficient, takes whatever time is needed for my evaluation and questions, and provides honest assessment. He runs a high caliber business that has been consistently pleasant, remains way ahead of the technology, and the entire office is always extremely clean and bright. Highest regards and recommendations!”

“I had neglected my dental care for over 20 years due to fear of the whole process. I took a leap of faith and went to this office and I am so glad I did. They understood my situation and moved forward without making me feel bad. It was an 8 month marathon of dental work. I had fillings, cleanings, wisdom teeth removed, an extraction and a wonderful implant put in. I was a hard patient to work with and the whole crew was nice to me every step of the way. Years from now when I still have my teeth I’ll have this place to thank. They fixed me up now and destroyed my fear of the dentist office for the future.”

“I just moved to the area and needed to find a new dentist. After looking through tons of reviews, I settled on this dentist, and after my visit decided that this place will be my new go-to! The doctor was fantastic. Was so thorough, took the time to explain to me what was going on with my teeth, always checking to make sure that I was doing okay, and was so friendly and caring. I would recommend them to anyone. I’ll be back.”
