5 Tips for a Cavity-Free Easter

by | Apr 6, 2022 | Easter

Chocolate eggs and sweets are enjoyable and enticing during the Easter season, but excessive consumption can cause tooth damage.

It is critical to balance enjoying sweets and safeguard your and your family’s long-term dental health throughout the Easter season.

This Easter, here are five Cavity-Free tips for you

#1. Consider alternatives to chocolate

It’s easy to feel guilty about merely giving youngsters one little chocolate Easter egg.

It’s tempting to get rid of the guilt by buying a bunch of huge chocolate eggs instead.

Painting eggs, going on a walk, or going on a treasure hunt are activities your children may do to enjoy Easter without overindulging in chocolate.

#2. Chew on sugar-free gum

After a meal or snack, chewing sugarless gum can assist your saliva glands in neutralising the acids in your mouth.

Gum chewing also aids in the removal of food particles that have remained stuck between your teeth.

Look for a sugar-free gum that includes Xylitol, which has been shown to help decrease cavities, in your Easter baskets.

Don’t forget to put some sugarless gum in your Easter baskets.

#3. Drink water

When you believe you’re hungry, you’re thirsty most of the time.

So, when your youngster is out looking for Easter eggs, have a bottle of water close by.

A big gulp of water will fill their stomachs and keep them hydrated, making them less willing to consume chocolate eggs later on.

#4. Maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine

Don’t allow the excitement of the Easter long weekend to distract you from your commitment to good dental health.

Maintain your healthy oral hygiene regimen by setting a morning and night schedule. Brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste 2x a day for at least two minutes each time, and floss every day.

#5. Visit your Belmont WA dentist

Once the Easter eggs are gone, you may want to schedule visits for your complete family so your Belmont WA dentist may carefully check for tooth decay or symptoms of gum disease.
