Easter Is Around the Corner

You know what that means? CHOCOLATE. And bunnies. But mostly chocolate. Who doesn’t love mini eggs!?  This also means sugar overload! Sugar causes acid, acid causes decay. Saliva helps to reverse the effects of acids, but can take up to 30 minutes.

Here are some tips when indulging on Easter goodies:

1) Do not brush for 30 minutes

2) Finish with a piece of hard cheese, like cheddar!

3) Minimize the the frequency of snacking, best to eat all at once rather than grazing on sugar all day

4) Don’t forget fruits also contain fructose and can be acidic as well

5) Feel free to drop off any unwanted Easter treats at the office for our consumption

  • Book an Appointment!

    • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
