For adults, summer can be a great time to enjoy alcoholic drinks responsibly. A cold beer on a hot day, a nice glass of wine on the patio, or whatever your preference is can be great. But you need to know that alcohol can hurt your teeth and gums. It can increase your risk of cavities, gum disease, and more.
