Tip: Avoid Unexpected Decay Culprits
You might not think much more about your spring allergies other than the fact that they are very annoying. However, you should know they can actually lead to smile health problems like tooth decay. If you find yourself quite congested, you may end up breathing through your mouth (not your nose). This can lead to dry mouth, which in turn, allows bacteria to have a field day in your mouth. The result? Decay, of course, and yucky breath. Treat seasonal congestion to avoid an unwanted smiles health issues.
Tip: Keep Sleep Steady
Those allergies might interrupt not only your smile health but your sleep health, too! Did you know that congestion will make snoring worse? Treat the problem and let us know if you require additional care for nightly snoring.
