If you want a strong and healthy smile this summer, our dentists, Dr. Stephanie S. Karlin and Justin S. Petracek, don’t blame you! No one wants to worry about dental problems and even dental injuries while they’re at the pool, traveling and doing other fun summer activities. To help you have the top-notch summer smile you want, we encourage you to do the following things:

-Wear a mouthguard: A mouthguard can help you avoid knocked-out and broken teeth when you play high-contact sports. This is because it absorbs the force when you get hit in the face. So, make sure to protect your smile with the guard while you’re active.

-Pack your oral hygiene tools: When you travel this summer, make sure to pack your toothbrush, toothpaste and dental floss. It’s still important to clean and care for your teeth and gums regularly when you’re away! So, remember to brush twice a day and floss daily.

-Attend your dental checkups: Dental checkups help you prevent cavities and gum disease, which is why your checkups are vital for a top-notch oral health. So, if you’re due for a checkup this summer, don’t forget to visit our office!
