Summer: All About Super Simple Smile Safety!

Have you begun thinking about particular measures you may wish to put in place for the summer season, so you can simply relax and stop worrying about your own smile health, as well as the safety of your family’s smiles? If you’re not entirely sure about how to make this happen but you most certainly spend time each summer worrying about accidental damage and more, then you are definitely in luck! Our Ankeny, IA team has the diverse array of particulars you need to keep in mind, so you can have loads of fun (without a single bit of anxiety).

Be Careful When Swimming

You may be spending a lot of your energy considering travel plans, making sure you have sunscreen, and ensuring everyone is well hydrated! This, of course, is music to our ears! With that said, we remind you that there are a few more things to consider. The first one we’d like to highlight? Being very careful when you’re swimming, particularly when you’re choosing to use a pool. All it takes is reminding yourself and your children to walk (never choose to run on slippery surfaces), to jump out away from the side of the pool if you jump in, to get into and out of the swimming pool with caution, and you’re in good shape!

Watch Out For Sunny Citrus

Ah yes, it’s a staple of summertime: Citrus fruit! You may be eating orange slices, adding lemon to your water, indulging in sweet lemonade, and the list continues. While these choices certainly offer you a hefty dose of important nutrients, citrus is also very acidic and can lead to smile health concerns (like acid erosion). Either do your best to limit citrus or be very mindful about drinking water immediately following a snack or drink.

Beware The Pits And Seeds Of Summer Fruit!

Summer fruit! It’s yummy! It’s refreshing! It’s also often full of seeds or pits you easily overlook. So, do yourself and your smile health a favor this summer: Beware this damage-causing culprit, so you can avoid the need for restorative care that you could have easily side-stepped. Whether you’re about to eat cherries, watermelon, or anything else, take a closer look before you dive in, so to speak!
