Reading the Cosmetic Dentistry News recently reminded us of the effect that Summer has on our teeth. Yes it might sound crazy but we tend to eat differently during the warmer months and it is not always a good change of diet.

tomatoPopular Summer foods, like pickle with your sandwiches and salads, can cause an increased decolourisation of your teeth. Fizzy drinks and of course Fruit juices, which are full of sugar in most cases, are consumed more. Tomatoes are very acidic and although are good for a diet, can be harmful to teeth.

The basic rules are the same though, if you want to keep your teeth healthy remember to brush regularly and take a sugar free gum out with you if you know you are going to be eating or drinking things that are harmful to teeth.
