Summertime is for cookouts, going to the pool, swimming in the sea and lying in the sun.
However, researchers warn that during summer the number of dental related accidents and dental damages is much higher than throughout the rest of the year.
Children are involved in many collision injuries which result in damaged or even knocked out teeth, and they are at a higher risk of injuring their teeth at the side of the pool or by falling from the bike.

Additionally, summer is also the time for drinking sodas, white wine, and sports drinks in excess. Try to be careful and moderate your intake of these harmful beverages, which are highly acidic and destroy the dental enamel quickly. Instead, limit yourself to as much pure water as possible, and drink the favorite beverages only occasionally.
