It’s easy to forget about the health of our smile while soaking up some sun at the pool. However, we need to be mindful. Chlorine in the pool can be damaging to our teeth if exposed to it regularly – and let’s face it, with summer’s heat on the way, chances are it will be regular. To prevent minor tooth erosion from the high pH levels of chlorinated pool water, try scheduling an extra teeth cleaning and fluoride treatment at the start of the season. Also, keeping your mouth closed while you swim is a simple and obvious solution. With a little bit of care, you can keep your smile safe and looking bright all summer long!
