It's Hot, Here Are Some New Tips For Staying Hydrated
The warm weather hasn't abated, so this month we're offering you some new ways to not only stay hydrated, but also stay cool. Keeping cool and hydrated is important not only for your body, but your teeth as well.
Here are 3 tips that can help you to stay hydrated in the sun without having to go out of your way:
- Drink Less Alcohol - Drinking alcohol actually dehydrates you. It's easy to think that just because you're drinking a liquid you're staying hydrated, but it actually causes you to lose more water than you are consuming.
- Choose Fruit - Many fruits contain a high concentration of water. Watermelon and grape are two great examples of fruit that can hydrate you as well as tasting amazing.
- Look For Dehydration Symptoms - Simply knowing when you're dehydrated is a great way to prevent further issues. The most common symptom is a headache, but can often be followed with vomiting, a feeling of fatigue, or a flushed complexion.
You can find more hydration tips like this on the website.
Free Dental Check Up For Your Child
Before you know it, your children will be back at school to start a new academic year. Their attendance at school is important as it means they can learn as much as possible, which is important for their future.
Using the remainder of the summer holiday period to get your child in for a dental check-up is a great way to not only save you time but to also avoid taking your children away from their education. And don't forget; children under the age of 18, or under the age of 19 and in full-time education, get free dental care on the NHS.
All of our Midlands Smile Centres practices offer dental care for children. Book them in for their free appointment today at your local MSC.
Invisalign Open Day at Handsworth Wood
If you missed out on Selly Oak's Invisalign Open Day, you still have the opportunity to attend our next event at Handsworth Wood MSC. This event will be offering attendees the chance to find out more about Invisalign treatment, and to take advantage of several great offers. This is your opportunity to take the first step along the road to your desired smile.
Handsworth Wood will be running their Invisalign Open Day on July 31st and August 1st 2019. During the event, you will be able to receive a free Invisalign consultation, smile simulation, and save up to £250. This means you will be able to see how your smile could look after you have completed Invisalign, and make an informed decision before signing-up for this incredible treatment.
In addition, we will have an Itero Scanner meaning that we can fully simulate your journey to straighter teeth without the need for impressions. Impression free scans will only be available during our open day.

Dental implants can fill the gap in your teeth, restoring your smile and giving you more confidence. On July 31st our West Heath practice will be opening its doors for Midland Smile Centres' first Dental Implant Open Evening.
On the evening, patients can receive a free dental implant consultation including an implant scan, helping to provide patients with a good idea of how the treatment might benefit them after completion. Finally, a 20% discount can be claimed if you decide to go ahead with the treatment on the night.
