Make sure you are drinking fluids that are good for you and your smile. Sports drinks that claim to help you with endurance usually are high in sugar and sugary drinks are not the best for you or your teeth. To stay hydrated, your best option is to drink plenty of water.

Summer is filled with sweet treats, but you need to remember that while in orthodontic treatment you should avoid certain foods. To protect your orthodontic appliances, stay away from sticky, hard and crunchy treats. Find healthier foods you can snack on that are tasty and good for you.
