- Try Out These Healthier Easter Treats
If you are looking forward to a balanced healthy meal on easter, you should reduce intake of candies, sticky meals and keep meals simple, and healthy. Alternate sweets and candies with fruits and vegetables.
2. Follow These Toothy Care Tips
The abundance of easter candy lining the shelves this time of year is a great reminder that it’s important to take care of your oral health. Check out these 3 tooth care tips to make sure you’ve “brushed up” on the latest.
This one may seem obvious, but brushing twice a day is the best way to protect against tooth decay and gum disease. Cleaning the daily plaque build-up removes harmful bacteria from the teeth and gums. This is especially important during candy-heavy holiday seasons.
Remember, brushing alone isn’t enough since tooth decay and gum disease usually begin between teeth and below the gum line. Flossing is the only way to get at these problem areas.
Schedule Regular Dental Check-Ups
After Easter, schedule your regular dental checkup with your dentist. They would give you a thorough cleaning that will remove all the hidden plaque on your teeth.
