What are your plans for Spring Break? No matter what you choose to do or where you choose to go, don’t let your springtime activities “break” your smile. Visit Dr. Villani so you can enjoy your time off with a healthy smile.


If you’re planning a vacation, be sure to include your travel dental kit. You still need all your oral hygiene tools, even when you’re traveling. Your portable kit should include toothpaste, a toothbrush, dental floss, a tongue scraper, mouthwash, first aid supplies, and breath fresheners to keep your mouth clean and fresh when you’re on the run. Furthermore, if you’re planning a special trip to the beach or ski resort, be sure to wear a protective lip balm to avoid dry lips. Additionally, be sure to schedule your dentist appointment with Dr. Villani before you leave for your trip. A professional checkup beforehand will help prevent any serious dental issues while you’re gone.


The comfortable springtime weather may encourage you to spend more time outdoors. When you’re playing sports or exercising, be sure to wear a mouth guard to protect your smile from accidental falls and injuries. In addition, if the spring breeze makes your teeth feel sensitive, visit Dr. Villani to determine the cause of your tooth pain.


Maybe all you want to do during Spring Break is rest and relax. As you lounge around the house, be careful not to get lazy with your dental care. You may begin to pick up unhealthy habits, like snacking on sugars and carbs as you watch TV, consuming energy drinks for those late-night parties, or simply skipping brushing and flossing because you just “don’t feel like it.” You should also schedule your dental visit with Dr. Villani during your break because you will have enough time to rest and recover from any necessary procedures and adjust to your new smile.

Dr. Villani can keep your smile healthy through all your Spring Break activities. Contact Brighton Family Dental Group in Brighton, MA, at (617) 562-5210 to schedule an appointment. We welcome patients from Brighton, Watertown, Cambridge, Brookline, Newton, and the surrounding communities.
