Don’t Let Summer Fun Turn Into Autumn Woes
We cannot believe that September has arrived! We hope that you had an amazing summer! Even though summer doesn’t technically end for another few weeks, the unofficial end of summer arrives around Labor Day. Before we know it, the holiday season will be upon us. If you have not visited our office within the past six months for an oral hygiene examination and cleaning, now is the time to schedule an appointment. You would be surprised at the effect your summer snacking and sweets can have on your oral health. Read on to learn about the importance of routine dental care, especially after the summer.
Don’t Let Summer Sweets Affect Your Oral Health
Did you travel this summer or have any special plans? We love hearing the stories of our patients’ adventures, time spent enjoying the outdoors, and other exciting things that were done over the past few weeks. No matter what your plans were this summer, there were probably sugary treats involved. Whether it is a delicious dessert or perhaps a summer cocktail, sugar seems to be a staple during the summer. We would hate for your enjoyment this summer to turn into a problem with your oral health come fall and winter.
Schedule an Appointment Today!
You might be surprised how quickly your oral health is affected by added sugar in your diet. This is especially true if you have relaxed your oral hygiene routine. When harmful bacteria and plaque remain on the teeth, they quickly develop into harmful acids that begin to eat away at the enamel. Routine appointments are important because we not only thoroughly clean your teeth but also check for signs of decay. Early detection and fast treatment of problems in your mouth are important to prevent further complications.
If you are unsure when we saw you for your last appointment or you are looking to schedule your next visit, be sure to contact our office, which is located in Bowie, MD. We look forward to seeing you soon!
