Going to the dentist in summer

The vacation period is ideal to spend time taking care of our oral and smile health and esthetic, if we care more our aspect we cannot forget that beauty starts by a beautiful smile.
On the other hand, summer requires its own cares in what oral health entails and with the habits change that we do during these days we need to watch more than never our mouth state so no pathologies flourish that have been on a latent state during the rest of the year.
