July is UV Safety month, and while most people remember to wear sunscreen, many people forget to protect their smile. Our lips are susceptible to burning, which over time can cause a variety of issues including skin and oral cancers. Take care of your lips by applying SPF 15 or higher lip balm when spending time outdoors, especially during the summer. Remember to reapply after having a swim, drink, snack or other activity that can dilute your protection from the sun. If you see white or reddish patches on the inside of your mouth, or have a lip or mouth sore that doesn’t heal, be sure to alert your dentist.
