Let’s talk about how Easter celebration can affect our teeth!
Your oral health routine is important to remember over the Easter period and keeping an eye on how much sugar is consumed, especially our children.

Our team at Dartford Road Dental Centre want to ensure that you take the right precautions during this time of year so that your oral health does not suffer and is at its best.

Therefore, we thought we should jump in and offer some Dental tips:

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER

1. Water will help to neutralize the acids in your mouth
2. Encourage your children to drink water by leaving a jug of water on the table during meal times.

AVOID GRAZING

1. Limit consumption of sugary foods and beverages to mealtimes only.
2. Eating between meals increases the time that your teeth are exposed to food. If the foods contain sugar or natural sugars you will be at a greater risk for tooth decay. The longer the sugar is on your teeth the greater the risk for decay.

AVOID STICKY AND HARD SWEETS

1. Sticky stubborn sweets tend to get stuck in between teeth!
2. As the sugars remain in contact with the teeth, the sugars get to work and begin to break down the enamel. Hard boiled sweets can also put your teeth at risk because, in addition to being full of sugar, they can also trigger a dental emergency such as a broken or chipped tooth.

BRUSHING YOUR TEETH – but not straight after your chocolate!

1. Food and drinks high in sugar soften the enamel (white coating) of the tooth, so it is important that you wait at least 30 minutes before brushing and allowing your saliva to neutralise the harmful acids– as you don’t want to cause enamel erosion!
2. Don’t forget to brush your teeth! You should aim to brush your teeth for 2 minutes twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. Also remember to include your interdental cleaning aids.

HEALTHY OPTIONS

1. Sugar-free eggs and dark chocolate, are now widely available in stores!
2. Snacks – a few examples, crackers, celery, cheese, milk, water, nuts, fresh vegetables and fruits!

Remember Our teeth and gums play a vital role in our overall health and wellbeing, so it is important to have regular dental check-ups and hygiene appointments.
