Enjoy Cold Summer Treats Without Harming Your Smile

With the warm weather comes the need for cold treats. For many people, ice cream is a favorite go-to for the hot days! Unfortunately, you risk harming your smile by indulging too much.

Ice cream does have calcium, which is good for your teeth, however it also has a lot of sugar. Too much sugar can increase the cavities in your mouth and result in oral health problems. However, we’re sharing a video that shares a few tips on how you can enjoy this favorite summer treat without doing too much damage to your teeth.

At the same time, here are a few ideas for other cold treats that don’t have as much sugar:

  • Chilled grapes
  • Frozen berries mixed with greek yogurt
  • Iced tea sweetened with fruit like peaches or berries
