Tips to Avoid Dental Emergency Over the Easter Holidays

How to Keep Your Holidays Happy

While it’s impossible to prevent all dental disasters, there are a few tips you can follow to reduce your chance of an Easter emergency:

  • Watch your alcohol intake – Accidents can happen if you overindulge. All it takes is a simple stumble and fall for a tooth to become chipped or cracked.
  • Pay attention to your plate – Keeping your eyes on the conversation while you take your next bite could lead you to chomp down on an olive pit or chicken bone.
  • Avoid hard candies – Choose softer treats that you can chew without doing any damage.
  • Forget the party tricks – Don’t try to crack a nut or pop a bottle cap with your teeth. Your friends might be impressed, but they won’t pay for the dental treatment you’ll end up needing if you accidentally crack a tooth, too.
