One of your best defenses against tooth decay is your saliva.

But during the hot summer months, it’s easy to become dehydrated, making it harder for your body to produce the amount of saliva you need to prevent tooth decay and other issues.

So be sure to stay well-hydrated this season, drinking more water than you normally do throughout the rest of the year.
