Take Note Of These Tips!
The first thing we recommend is that you start your vacation safely. To do this, a good option could be to perform a routine check-up a few days before starting your rest weeks. This will ensure that you can start your days of disconnection by being aware of the current state of your oral health.
Now, if you take for granted that you will not have enough time for it, we propose some tips that you should take into account. Of course, remember that if you have done the review and everything has turned out correct, you must also follow these recommendations. At the end of the day, the objective is none other than prevention.
That said, the first thing we recommend is that you buy a small toothbrush to take with you everywhere. This will allow you that when you eat and dine out, you can spend a minute of your time going to the bathroom to brush. Even if you don’t brush deeply, the action will help reduce both the level of plaque bacteria and food debris that accumulates between the teeth.
The rest of the recommendations also include food. Believe it or not, some foods can help us maintain the good condition of our mouth. Among them, apples. We recommend that you eat one a day between meals. In addition to its great taste, it will also favor the well-being of your mouth.
And another food that will play in your favor will be yogurt. Among its properties, it stands out by neutralizing the acids of the bacteria in our mouth. Have it for dessert and discover its benefits! Also, do not forget to drink water often to balance the pH of your mouth as well as to eliminate possible remains of food that remain in it.
In this sense, you have to reduce your sugar consumption, not only on vacation but throughout the year. Also, remember that alcohol and tobacco should be consumed as occasionally as possible. Both affect the discomfort of our oral health. Remember the importance of moderation.

Oral Health Tips For Teens
- Common tooth decay in teens
- Dental cavities are the most common chronic disease among young people ages 5 to 17, according to information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
- You have to play safe. Contact sports can cause oral injuries, but teens can prevent them by wearing a mouthguard when playing sports. More than 200,000 mouth and jaw injuries are recorded per year, and dentists regularly recommend the use of mouthguards in a variety of sports activities. Whether it’s a dentist-made or store-bought mouth guard, teens should keep it clean by rinsing it regularly and storing it in a ventilated container.
Avoid mouth piercings. People who wear piercings on the tongue or other parts of the mouth can easily chip their teeth when they eat, sleep, talk, or chew. The fracture may be confined to the tooth’s enamel and a filling may need to be placed, or it may be deeper, which may cause a root canal procedure or tooth extraction to be necessary.
Infections are also common with mouth piercings. The tongue can become inflamed after being pierced and, in some cases, it can become infected and inflamed to the point that it can obstruct breathing. Unclean drilling equipment can cause other infections, such as blood-borne hepatitis.
Make time for healthy habits. Teens are fed “nutrition” bars and fast foods to stay alert and keep up with school, extracurricular activities, and part-time jobs. However, these habits can permanently damage oral health and overall health. Teens should have access to healthy snacks such as apples, diced carrots, and cheese, and should look for sugar-free or low-sugar beverages like organic tea or coconut milk. Keeping a travel toothbrush in the locker or backpack can help teens maintain good dental cleaning habits, as they will be able to brush their teeth after every meal or snack.
