Easter, and more specifically, Easter eggs, means that the popularity of chocolate is higher at this time of year than any other. Here is some advice to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy over Easter without having to give up Easter eggs:
– Try not to go for the biggest egg you can possibly find. Treat yourself, but do so with a smaller-sized egg. Also, it is best to find an egg that is just an egg, without the additional chocolate bars and packets of sweets that often accompany them.
– It is best to eat portions of the egg as a dessert for after your meals rather than as a snack.
– Dark chocolate is often a good choice as it can contain less sugar than other chocolate options.
– Remember to maintain a high level of oral care and hygiene, with regular flossing and brushing.
The important thing to remember at Easter is that looking after your teeth and gums is an important part of looking after your general health, and eating healthily and sensibly is an important habit to maintain all year round.
