We all love Easter Eggs at this time of year, but like many holidays, Easter can be a time when we indulge in eating too many sweets. We need to keep in mind the effect that this can have on our teeth and on our smile.
From a dental perspective, the key is to limit your consumption of sweets to meal times rather than nibbling throughout the day. After eating sugar, teeth are under an acid attack, and to keep your teeth at their best, you want to limit the number of acid attacks on your teeth throughout the day as well as cleaning your teeth regularly and very thoroughly. Our dentists and hygienists can give you more information on fighting tooth decay as well as help you spot the signs early.
Wishing all of our patients a very happy and relaxing Easter break.
