Last time we talked about how, if you are not careful, scuba diving can result in injuries to the mouth. However, today the Nashville, TN dentists Drs. Elam, Vaughan, and Fleming want to talk about something just a little more fun; how you can turn summer outdoor movie nights into a teeth friendly adventure for the whole family.

Get Your Movie Snacks Ready
Something else always comes along with summertime cinematic adventures, and that’s movie snacks. It almost seems unnatural not be munching on something during any cinematic endeavor. The experience is just not complete!
However, the problem lies in the fact that many movie-time munchies are rather terrible for your teeth. If it isn’t popcorn, which is notorious for getting caught in between teeth and irritating the gums, it’s sugary snacks like candy. Neither of these items are particularly favorable for dental implants or teeth in general.
Bearing the above facts in mind, we have a few fun and easy ideas that you might want to try if you are looking to make you and your family’s movie time adventure a more teeth friendly one.
