Summer will be here again soon. Along with that warmer weather are some particular considerations to keep in mind while you and your family are enjoying the sunshine.

Drinking water is important. Hotter weather can lead to dehydration, which can lead to dry mouth. Staying hydrated helps to keep saliva in your mouth, which helps to remove bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease.

When anyone in your family is playing sports, they should wear an athletic mouthguard, like the ones we can make at our dentist office in Reading, MA. We consider this part of our preventive care at First Dental Associates.

And keep doing the things you should do — like making regular visits to the dentist. Call us today at [phone] or contact us online to set up your next appointment.
