5 Tips To Stay Cavity-Free This Easter

by | Apr 7, 2022 | Family Dentists in Geelong

Easter is a symbol of a variety of things. Religious observances, family reunions, egg hunts, and Easter baskets. When you throw in those delectable cakes, beverages, and snacks, the entire celebration may become a day of diet overindulgence.

This day might be difficult on your enamel, which is unfortunate for your teeth. Those sweet delights might cause your mouth to produce more acid, resulting in tooth damage and cavities.

We’ve put together a list of five dental health guidelines to help you and your family stay healthy during Easter.

5 tips to stay cavity-free this Easter

#1. Consider alternatives to chocolate

While chocolate is a nice Easter treat, many other delicacies aren’t so tooth-friendly. Hard candies, jelly beans, and anything sticky is at the top of the list. To avoid dental cavities, parents and grandparents should encourage their children to fill Easter baskets with non-sugary goodies.

#2. Chew on sugar-free gum

If you find it difficult to brush your teeth after your treat, you may use mouthwash or chew sugar-free gum instead – this helps generate saliva, which helps get rid of bacteria!

#3. Drink plenty of water

When you are not near your house, drink plenty of water to clean your mouth. Because germs thrive in a dry mouth, drinking water will help you rehydrate and increase salivary flow. Saliva includes enzymes and buffers that help reharden tooth surfaces, neutralise acid, and restore the mouth’s pH.

#4. Maintain oral hygiene

Maintaining a proper dental hygiene practice daily, particularly around Easter, will assist in keeping your teeth healthy and preventing deterioration. And cavities and gum disease can be avoided by flossing at least once a day.

#5. Visit your Norlane dentist regularly

It’s essential to see your Norlane dentist 2 times a year for a dental checkup to identify cavities and dental decay and sense and feel abnormalities that you can’t see or feel.

Early detection means fewer trips to the dentist and less money spent on dental care.
