Dental Health Tips for the Fourth of July

Tomorrow is the Fourth of July! A lot of people will be attending parties and backyard BBQs this weekend. That can only mean one thing–there will be delicious treats everywhere. However, holidays are not an excuse to eat foods that are bad for your dental health. Below are some tips that will help you make healthy choices tomorrow.

  • Make sure you brush your teeth for 2 minutes before and after the party.
  • Opt for healthy snacks. There are bound to be trays of fruits and veggies!
  • Tame your sweet tooth for sugary drinks. Steer clear of soda, juices and sports drinks. Instead, drink fluoridated water.
  • Do you play sports in the backyard on the Fourth of July? If so, make sure you are wearing a mouth guard. It will help protect your pearly whites.
