Did you know there are some Easter gifts that can promote dental issues for your children? Well, it’s true. This means that if you enjoy giving them Easter gifts, you could be giving them dental problems and dental pain as well. You don’t want this, do you? Our pediatric dentists are happy to help you by encouraging you to give your loved ones smile-healthy gifts instead. Those gifts could be:

-Sugar-free candy: When you eat sugary candy, you increase your chances of having cavities. So, when you give your loved ones candy, make sure it’s sugar-free. That way they can enjoy their treats and avoid dental issues at the same.

-Sugar-free gum: Sugar-free gum can keep the jaw busy as well as help you prevent cavities. This is because as you chew it, you produce saliva. Saliva washes the bacteria away and cleans the smile. Just make sure to give your loved ones sugar-free gum. Sugary gum can promote cavities instead of preventing them.

-An electric toothbrush: Electric toothbrushes are handy oral hygiene tools that can properly and effectively clean the smile. They can even make oral hygiene a little more fun! So, feel free to talk to our dental team about the best electric toothbrush for your loved ones.
