With all of its joys, summer is not without its health and safety hazards. There are the obvious ones, like sunburns, bug bites, sports/water injuries, and car trouble, and then there are the lesser-known troubles - dental troubles - that can also put a real damper on things.
Of course, you look forward to celebrating the holidays with your grandchildren. But the seasonal celebrations often lead to overeating, overspending, over-committing, overextending – for too many of us the holidays have become and exhausting stress fest instead of the most wonderful time of the year.
Eating and drinking sugary foods and drinks for prolonged periods of time increase your chances of gum disease and tooth decay. And let’s face it, there is nothing like a holiday get-together to keep folks mindlessly indulging on whatever is in front of them…for hours on end.
