Tips for Having a Healthy Easter Smile

Do you want a top-notch smile and oral health for your child this Easter? If so, you need to take good care of their teeth and gums. If you’re not careful, they may suffer the consequences. Our dentists are happy to help your child achieve a healthy Easter smile because they deserve to celebrate the holiday without suffering dental pain or dental issues! So, for a healthy Easter smile in San Antonio, Texas, it’s best to do the following things:

-Limit candy consumption: Candy can promote cavities because they are loaded with sugar. The more sugar you eat, the better chance you have of damaging your smile. So, it’s best to make sure they eat candy in moderation.

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

-Clean the smile: Make sure to brush their teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste Easter morning and Easter night. You should also make sure they floss and rinse at least once Easter day. They should also do these things following Easter to maintain a top-notch smile, especially if they enjoy eating the leftover treats!
