5 Tips for Having Egg-cellent Teeth This Easter

by | Apr 8, 2022 | Easter

​Easter is the most important Christian holiday, yet it just means one thing to many people: CHOCOLATE!

Chocolate used to be a treat when people finished fasting for Lent, but now most people bypass this step and eat chocolate in the days leading up to Easter Sunday’s huge binge.

Because of its high sugar content, chocolate might be hazardous to our dental health.

Five tips for keeping your teeth in good condition this Easter!

#1. Consider alternatives to chocolate

If you want to have a balanced, nutritious dinner on Easter, limit your candy and sticky foods intake and make your meals simple and healthy.

Swap out sweets and candy for fruits and vegetables.

#2. Chew on sugar-free gum

Chewing sugar-free gum for 15-20 minutes increases saliva production, which helps to neutralise acidic compounds in your mouth. It’ll also aid in the removal of food particles from your teeth.

#3. Drink plenty of water

Drinking plenty of water is essential not just for your oral health but also for your entire wellness.

Water aids in the removal of food lodged in your teeth and maintains healthy saliva levels, which serve as the mouth’s natural rinse.

#4. Maintain oral hygiene

Brushing your teeth 2x a day is the most effective strategy to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

The removal of dangerous germs from the teeth and gums is accomplished by cleaning daily plaque build-up.

This is especially true during the candy-filled holiday seasons.

However, tooth decay and gum disease commonly starts between the teeth and below the gum line, so brushing alone isn’t enough. The only way to get to these trouble spots is to floss.

#5. Visit your Warrnambool dentist regularly

Tooth decay is a frequent concern, but regular examinations can identify even the smallest lesions in your teeth, allowing your Warrnambool dentist to give appropriate treatment more promptly and affordably.
