17 Mar Getting Ready for Easter! Read Our Top Tips and Tricks to Stay Cavity-Free With the Easter Bunny
Have you noticed the Easter bunny has beautifully healthy teeth despite delivering all that chocolate? We think he must enjoy his Easter goodies sensibly. This Easter, you can make sure your teeth remain cavity-free and healthy with our easy tips.
Stick to Eating Chocolate
Chocolate melts easily, so it is more quickly washed away by saliva. It’s a far better choice compared with sticky sweets that linger for hours and can be challenging to remove with regular brushing and flossing. Hard candies also take longer to dissolve and can easily break or chip tooth enamel.
Don’t Graze on Your Goodies
It’s far better to eat chocolate with your main meal and to graze on it all day long. The more frequently you snack, the longer your teeth are exposed to acids created by bacteria that feast off sugars.
Rinse after Eating
Immediately after eating something sweet, rinse your mouth with water as this helps to reduce the acids that soften and erode tooth enamel. You can safely brush your teeth about half an hour afterwards.
Practice Good Oral Hygiene
Even though there are lots of festivities to enjoy over Easter, make sure you stick to your routine of twice-daily brushing and flossing once-a-day. It only takes a few minutes and will help your teeth to stay cavity-free.
