It's that time of year again, where giant 1.5kg chocolate Easter eggs and hot cross buns line the supermarket shelves even before you hit the fruit section.
It only happens once a year but these tips may help to lessen the burden on your teeth.
Tip Number 1:
Stay away from crunchy/hard sweets if you have large fillings, or weaker teeth
Tip Number 2:
Drink water and swish to rinse off some of that chocolate after you've had a treat
Tip Number 3:
Avoid brushing straight after eating any treats, foods or drinks.
Rather wait 30 minutes before brushing to avoid scrubbing away weakened enamel
Tip Number 4:
Floss and brush thoroughly if you've indulged in sweet treats to avoid holes between teeth
Tip Number 5:
If you feel any sensitivity after having chocolates or lollies- usually means there could be a cavity.
Give us a call to have it checked out before it gets worse.
