With Valentine’s Day here, once again, it is time to remember to be very careful choosing your candies and sweet treats!
Sweet, sour and sticky candies taste the best, but they are known to damage your teeth. Remember, sour candies are acidic to your teeth and can weaken your enamel, which is a hard shell that protects your teeth. Weak enamel is easy to break down into tooth decay.
Our friends at the American Dental Association recommend choosing softer treats, such as soft chocolate or the treats that would melt in your mouth. There is nothing wrong in indulging, as long as you make sure you brush and floss between your teeth and around your gum line. If damage or sensitivity occurs, please give us a call as soon as possible.
Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at SmilePlus!
