1. Follow your Dental Routine - Whether you are hanging out with friends or binge-watching during your summer vacations, what remains constant should be your dental routine. And why just dental? Looking after your overall health as well must be your top-most priority. Beat the temptations or cravings and stick to your brushing, flossing, rinsing and tongue cleaning regime to be at the best of your smile, always. It is the best teeth care tip that you can follow at home.


2. Clean your tongue too

Plaque doesn't just build up on your teeth but also builds up on your tongue. Plaque buildup on your tongue can cause bad breath and other oral health problems like gum diseases. Its recommended to gently brush your tongue every time you brush your teeth.


3. Use a fluoride toothpaste

Do not just look for whitening agents and exciting flavors in your toothpaste. No matter which toothpaste you choose, make sure it contains fluoride. Fluoride has a mainstay in oral health, it provides defense against tooth decay by fighting off germs and thus keeps your teeth healthy naturally.


4. Get those jaws working

Include crunchy, fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Ready-to-eat, soft, and mushy foods  are convenient, but perhaps not so much when it comes to your teeth. Eating fresh, crunchy foods not only gets your jaws working but the healthy fibers from it will also protect your overall health.


5. Limit sugary and acidic foods

Acidic or sugary foods can erode the enamel of your teeth leading to cavities. Acidic fruits, coffee, and tea also tend to wear down your tooth enamel. So, be mindful while eating sugary and acidic foods.


6. Plan Your Dental Way - Planning is always the best. And we always practice it as well, right! So, why not the same with your health? Give time to your regular dental check-ups to pay the attention it deserves. Because better late than never is switched with "better plan than never". Also, stocking up on your dental health mandates is a good idea to avoid the last-minute excuse of not practicing your dental regime.


7. Stay Hydrated - Summer is all about staying hydrated. Not just for your oral health but for the sake of overall health as well. But remember, you are staying hydrated for the betterment of your health and definitely not to get another disease which you may catch if you satiate yourself with acidic and more sugary drinks. Because they may lead to cavity and tooth erosion.


8. Healthy Gums with Sun - Sunlight - is the greatest source of vitamin D and keeps your immune system better as well. As per the research, it is also prominent for gum disease. The right amount of sun leads to healthy gums, enhanced heart health, and so on. Ensure to not stay out in the sun for too long, the hazards are well documented as well.


9. No Tolerance With Symptoms - Don’t take plaque, toothache, gum bleeding, or anything unusual for that matter lightly. A healthy mouth never shows any weird symptoms. NEVER EVER! Mark our words and rush to the dentist whenever you feel anything problematic in your mouth.
