Of course, our Columbia, TN team hopes you and your family have a wonderful time this summer! There’s so much to do, summer vacation is the best, and the days are nice and long! With that said, we do want to emphasize the fact that while we certainly want you to soak up the relaxing ease of the warmer months, it’s also important to keep your smile health as a priority! How to do so, you wonder? Is there something special that you should do once the seasons change? Fortunately, the answers are easy to uncover: We’ve got them ready for you!
Summer Visits: Make Them Happen!
Don’t miss a dental checkup if it’s time for your next visit. Instead, make sure you set up a time and date and come see us, so your smile health receives the protection it needs!
Be Careful When You’re Swimming
We have a feeling that when you’re headed to the pool for some fun in the sun, your main goal is not to end up needing help from our team in the form of a dental crown for a cracked tooth. With that said, remember that this slippery summer past time is, unfortunately, a very common site for smile-related injuries. Be very careful! Think before you act (and remind kids to do the same), so you keep your smile in one piece.
Summer Sports? Wear A Mouthguard!
When you get together with friends and family over the summer and you spend more time outdoors, you may find yourself enjoying some activities like a game of soccer or football. It sounds like fun! That is, until you get smacked in the face (accidentally, of course) and smile health damage follows. An easy solution? Wear an athletic mouthguard and you’re good to go.
Traveling? Get Your Smile Together First!
One of those things you definitely don’t want to do during the upcoming summer? Head out of town without making sure your oral health is on track. Why not, you ask? Well, there are many reasons! The first? If you’re about to get onto an airplane, remember that the pressure change can exacerbate any smile-related problems and associated pain. So, if you need a filling, get that filling! Also, if you leave and you haven’t checked in with us, an under-the-radar issue can suddenly blossom overnight, when you’re too far from us for care. Make life easy by seeing us before you embark on your trip, so you aren’t out of town, spending a chunk of your time locating a dentist you don’t even know to rescue your smile health!
