Your Mouth Needs Some Spring Cleaning, Too!
- Posted on: Mar 25 2014
The spring season is just around the corner and it’s high time you store those winter gear, air out the rugs, and buy those rhubarbs that signal the start of spring for your next dinner recipe. Here at our Wheeling dental practice, we also encourage our clients to treat their mouth for some spring cleaning, too! After all, the state of your mouth largely influences the state of your overall health.
Below are some oral health tips that will certainly prove useful this coming spring!
Watch out for chapped lips brought about by dehydration. As the air warms up in spring, more people are spending more time outdoors doing exercise and other recreational activities. This is the perfect time to be more mindful of one’s fluid intake.
Participating in outdoor activities, particularly in contact sports, may make one prone to mouth injuries. Hence, the need to wear mouth guards for added protection.
The start of the spring season may also be the perfect time to replace your toothbrush. This should be a priority for those who unfortunately had a bad case of flu or colds during winter. It’s about time to get rid of those nasty leftover viruses which could be lurking in your brush.
Most people skip dental visits during winter due to the inconvenience of driving to the clinic with freezing temperatures and opting to stay indoors instead. Now that spring is finally here, you might not want to delay that dental visit anymore.
