6 tips for oral health during the summer vacations


Summer vacation is the perfect time to relax and enjoy time with friends and family. While fun, vacations often mean forgoing a proper dental care routine. This can have a negative impact on your oral health. While we are tempted by sweets and soft drinks, we need to pay attention to our oral hygiene. At EgoDent, we recommend that you visit your dentist both before and after you return from your summer vacation to have your dental health evaluated.

In this article we would like to give you 6 oral hygiene tips to follow during your summer vacation so that your teeth do not suffer:

Use a toothbrush and toothpaste suitable for your teeth

We recommend using a toothbrush with soft bristles and choosing a toothpaste that contains fluoride. This will help remove plaque and prevent tooth decay. It is also important to change the toothbrush every 3-4 months or after an infectious disease.

During summer holiday, your eating schedule may get out of hand, making it more difficult to maintain oral hygiene after each meal. Be sure to brush your teeth after eating and floss to remove food debris from between your teeth.

Don’t use your teeth to open objects

Although it’s hard to believe, this habit is picked up by many people. Opening objects with your teeth can damage them and cause severe cracks or crevices in your teeth that will later require dental treatment.

Protect your teeth during sports

If you play outdoor sports while on holiday, use a mouthguard. This will protect your teeth from impact and trauma.

Visit your dentist

Remember to schedule a visit with your dentist before or after your summer holiday. He or she will check the health of your teeth and can give you the right advice for more effective oral hygiene. At EgoDent, our specialists are ready to properly assess the condition of your teeth and provide you with practical solutions to your problems!

In summary, it is important to take care of your oral health during the summer vacations by brushing your teeth after every meal, avoiding foods and drinks that are too sweet or acidic, wearing a mouthguard and visiting the dentist. This way, you can relax and have fun without worrying about your dental health.
