Summer Safety for Your Smile

Maintain Hydration

Dehydration is one of the biggest problems during our long, hot summers. Dehydration can lead to dry mouth, which can cause serious tooth decay, so protect yourself by drinking plenty of water, sucking on artificially-sweetened hard candies, or chewing sugar-free gum to promote saliva production and keep your mouth moist.
