Easter is right around the corner, which means so are dental issues. Sadly, some Easter-related things can damage the teeth and gums and cause pain and problems. You don’t want to suffer from these things, do you? Well, our dentists, Dr. Dean F. Robinson and Dr. Scott C. Robinson want you to have a good Easter as well. This is why they encourage you to do all you can to prevent dental issues. You can do so by doing the following things:

-Limit your candy consumption: This can help you prevent cavities. This is because candy is loaded with sugar, and sugar promotes tooth decay. So, try not to eat all your Easter treats in one sitting. Do your best to eat them in moderation.

-Wear a mouthguard: If you’re going to participate in one of those vicious Easter egg hunts (we all know Easter egg hunts can be more intense than intended, especially if there’s money involved), then it’s best to wear a mouthguard while searching for your eggs. This can help you avoid oral injuries while you get shoved into trees and get hit in the face with elbows.

-Clean your smile: Brushing, flossing and rinsing can help you remove the harmful substances from your teeth and gums on Easter. This can help you avoid cavities as well as gum disease and other dental issues. So, make sure to brush in the morning and night and to floss and rinse at least once Easter day.
