Do you want a healthy smile this Easter? If so, you need to keep your teeth and gums in mind and do your best to prevent dental issues. Unfortunately, there are many things that can cause dental issues. So, our dentists, Dr. Steven Rodriguez and Dr. Swapna Kakarla encourage you to do everything you can to maintain your top-notch smile. Some things we recommend doing include:

-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 expecting to participate in a vicious Easter egg hunt (we all know they exist, especially when money is involved), then it’s best to wear a mouthguard while doing so. Wearing a mouthguard can help you prevent knocked-out and broken teeth as you get hit in the face with elbows and get shoved into the surrounding trees.

-Clean your smile: Cleaning your teeth and gums can help you prevent cavities, gum disease, enamel erosion and more on Easter day, so make sure to brush twice a day and rinse and floss once a day. However, if you consume something acidic, make sure to wait 30 minutes to brush.

If you do these things, you could have a strong and healthy smile this Easter. Do you have any questions about how to prevent Easter dental issues in Manchester, Michigan?
