Summer is slowly coming to an end and the first day of school is right around the corner. As you get ready for the new school year, it’s important to also get your smile ready. There are a few things you can do this summer to help you have a strong, healthy, and beautiful smile at school.

No. 1: Visit Dr. David S. Peterson. Getting a dental cleaning and exam before school starts is a great way to keep cavities and other dental issues at bay. This is because we offer treatments, like fluoride treatment and dental sealant placement, that can strengthen and protect your teeth. Maintaining a strong and healthy smile can help you miss less school because you won’t have toothaches and dental problems that require professional treatment during school hours.

No. 2: Pack the right snacks for lunch. Whether you believe it or not, there are many snacks that can harm your teeth and gums, especially sugary, sticky, and acidic snacks. It’s best to avoid eating them altogether because they cling to the teeth and attack the enamel. Instead, pack nuts, fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. These treats can strengthen as well as clean your smile.

No. 3: Make oral hygiene a top priority. It’s best to brush every morning and night and floss and rinse daily. These things can help you have a clean and healthy smile as well as a fresh and pristine breath.

If you do these things, you’ll be on the right track toward a great school smile in Salt Lake City, Utah. Call The Dental Studio today at 801-758-0985 if you have any questions or if you would like to know more. Our dental team is excited to assist you!
