Easter is upon us, and is a time to relax, enjoy the beauty of spring and indulge in chocolate treats! However, we must be mindful of our dental health, especially as fewer than three in ten children saw a dentist last year! Even before the pandemic, dental decay was the top reason for 5–9 year olds to be admitted to hospital, so dentists fear numbers may rise this year. As dentists are open and safe to visit, reinstating regular dental check-ups will help prevent problems developing. Call our Welcome Team on 01252 713797 or click to request a callback online.
Five tips to looking after your teeth at Easter
Eat Easter eggs at meal times to prevent snacking throughout the day, which puts teeth under constant plaque acid attack.
Look for low-sugar alternatives or different Easter gifts. Plan a trail or walk to promote a fun, active lifestyle.
Drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated, wash away food particles from your teeth, and to strengthen and protect teeth with fluoridated tap water.
Teach children good habits, such as healthy eating, exercising and brushing their teeth well.
Clocks have sprung forwards, so spring into action and get the dental care you need! We are thankful to have remained open since June 2020 with enhanced and stringent safety protocols in place to protect our patients and team. We continue to review all guidelines, and often go above and beyond to ensure that we continue to provide our full range of dental treatments in the safest possible environment.
Our patients’ safety is paramount, and we are delighted with feedback that they value the care given:
“I felt wholly safe and comfortable with the new infection control systems in place. Everything was made easy and clear. I couldn’t have felt in a safer environment. Excellent safe and friendly team. Thank you!” Mrs H.
“I would like to thank Hugh and Meena for their outstanding level of care, patience, kindness and understanding they gave me during surgery. The surgery is immaculate, and all Covid precautions are in place and strictly adhered to. I would also like to thank Georgie who contacted me and kept me informed via telephone and email communications. I highly recommend Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic” Miss S.
