If you want a top-notch smile this Easter, then our dentists, Dr. Steven Rodriguez and Dr. Robert Bettman, are more than happy to help you. Fortunately, there are things you can do to achieve your goal. So, make sure to keep your smile in mind and work hard because there are Easter-related traditions that can harm your teeth and gums. Our dentist encourages you to work toward a healthy Easter smile by doing the following things:

-Limit your candy consumption: Candy is loaded with sugar, and when you eat it, especially when you eat a lot of it, you increase your chances of developing cavities. So, it’s best to limit your consumption of sugary treats as much as possible.

-Wear a mouthguard: Some Easter egg hunts can be quite vicious, especially if there’s money involved. So, if you are about to participate in a potentially intense Easter egg hunt, it’s best to protect your smile with a mouthguard. That way you can prevent oral injuries when someone hits you in the face with their elbow or when you get shoved into a tree.

-Clean your smile: Make sure you brush your teeth Easter morning and Easter night. You should also floss once a day and rinse with mouthwash once a day. You should also do these things following Easter to keep your smile in great condition, especially if you’re still snacking on Easter treats.
