The Easter Bunny may be bringing sweets and treats to your family. Enjoy, but don’t let too much candy lead to tooth decay and cavities. Instead, follow these tips from our dental team in Montgomery, AL to keep your smile bright and shiny.
Limit the Sweets
Your family’s Easter baskets might be filled to the brim with chocolates, jelly beans, and more. That doesn’t mean that you should eat all of it in one sitting. Instead, setting limits on how much to eat at one time can reduce your risk of sugary particles getting stuck in your teeth.
Drink Some Water
Drinking water is a good idea in general, but it can be valuable if you have some H2O while you are eating your Easter sweets. Water can remove some of that sugary residue so it doesn’t become fuel for harmful bacteria.
Keep Up With Checkups
Preventive oral care needs to remain part of your routine at any time of year. That means you need to brush and floss daily. You also need to come in for professional cleanings a few times per year. This is how we remove plaque and tartar and polish your teeth so your smile can shine!
