sunskycloudsHow’s the warm weather treating you and your smile? When summer rolls around, we like to let our patients know that there’s a safe way to make it through summertime – and then a not-so-safe way when it comes to oral health protection. Do you think you know how to keep your smile in wonderful condition throughout these fun-filled months? Let’s find out with a quiz!

Quiz: True or False?

  1. True or False: Citrus is very popular for the summertime because it is sunny and refreshing – however, you should practice caution when drinking or eating citrus because it is acidic.
  2. True or False: It’s a good plan to protect your oral health this summer – and your overall health – by drinking water in place of other “hydrating” options like sports drinks.
  3. True or False: If you want a brighter smile for the summertime, you should give us a call – whitening your smile with professional care is safe and effective, while DIY options are not.

Quiz Answers

  1. True. Citrus drinks and fruits – though packed with healthy vitamins – can be dangerous for your smile. Consume them carefully, remembering to rinse with water afterwards to avoid oral health concerns like acid erosion.
  2. True. Sports drinks are quite acidic and may contain sugar, which is bad for your smile. We encourage you to drink water to keep your body and oral tissues hydrated, since water is completely safe (and very beneficial) for you.
  3. True. It’s important to receive professional teeth whitening, so you may avoid accidental damage (or unsatisfactory results).
