Schedule Your Next Appointment Before Summer Is Over
We don’t know how you feel, but the summer seems to be flying by. Before you know it, school will be starting again, and the fall routines will be back in full swing. When was the last time you and your family visited our office for a hygiene examination and cleaning? If it has been longer than six months or you cannot remember when you or your family had their last visit, now is the time to schedule an appointment. You might 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
Summer is a time when routines become more relaxed. It is also a common time for enjoying the outdoors, spending time with friends and family, and traveling. There are many sweets and sugary treats that are common during the summer. Whether you or a loved one regularly enjoys ice cream, ice pops, smores, or even cotton candy at the local fair, all of these delicious treats contain sugar that can lead to complications with your oral health. Summer is also a time when some adults indulge in sugary cocktails. We would hate for your enjoyment this summer to turn into a problem with your oral health come fall.

You might be surprised at how quickly your oral health can be affected by extra sugar in your diet. It can be particularly dangerous for our younger patients, who may have trouble brushing and flossing their teeth correctly. When harmful bacteria and plaque remain on teeth, they quickly develop into harmful acids that begin to eat away at tooth enamel. Routine appointments are important because we not only thoroughly clean your teeth, but we also check for signs of decay. Early detection and fast treatment of problems 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 New Braunfels, TX. I look forward to seeing you soon!
