From heart-shaped boxes filled with chocolates to sticky gummy bears, sweet treats are often the gift of choice on Valentine’s Day.
While these sugary treats are sure to delight your sweetheart, their teeth could be getting a sour deal.
Say, “I love you” and still ensure your significant other gets a great dental check-up by opting for treats that don’t cling to the teeth. Avoid those gummies as well as hard candies because both types of treats stay on your teeth longer.
Show your sweet side with treats such as dark chocolate that have some health benefits as well as less sugar, in many cases.
for example, are delectable and lower in sugar. Consider candies sweetened with Xylitol as this natural sweet substance may reduce the risk of tooth decay.
Encouraging your Valentine to get regular dental check-ups is a wonderful way to show you care!
