July 3, 2014 Happy 4th of July — Here are some quick tips for keeping up your dental health. Rinse. If you love your BBQ and patriotic-themed desserts, remember to chase your meals with some water to give your teeth a good rinse. Limit Sugary Foods. Between sweets and BBQ, you’re likely consuming a lot of sugar over the holiday weekend. Brush. Even if your party runs into the wee hours, watching fireworks, remember to brush your teeth before bed. Floss. Extra important, especially if you’ve been snacking all day.
