Summer habits and a person’s diet may have an adverse impact on one’s dental health.
Consuming certain foods and drinks, like the food at barbeques, may be problematic for one’s oral health. The summer schedule could wreak havoc on a child’s teeth because he or she isn’t a on a strict schedule like during the school year.
Also, with a higher number of outdoor activities during the summer, there’s more snacking and less meals eaten in some cases. The problem is that many snacks are more acidic than the kind of food you would eat during a meal, resulting in more damage to your teeth.
