Book Checkups

The summer holidays are a great time to book dental checkups for the entire family, ensuring everyone has a clean bill of dental health to enjoy the summer.

Stock up on Healthy Snacks

When the kids are home from school, it can be tricky to stop them snacking unhealthily. Make the most of seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables, ensuring they are clean and ready to grab for a healthy snack on the go. Swap unhealthy soft drinks and energy drinks for plain water which provides much better hydration and is healthier for teeth.

Protect Teeth When Playing Sports

It wouldn’t be summer without lots of sports, and while these are great fun, they can result in dental injuries. If you and your family love playing sports, make sure you have custom-fitted mouthguards, and we can make these for you here at Diverse Dental. A custom mouthguard is comfortable to wear and won’t affect breathing, and it provides maximum protection against dental injuries. When swimming in a pool, make sure everyone knows not to run on slippery pool decks as pool accidents cause many dental injuries.
