Will Sweets Sour Your Smile?
While we know it’s nearly impossible to stay completely away from those oh-so-tasty treats around the holidays, do your best to protect your smile by limiting your intake.
You should also be cautious about biting into hard candies like peanut brittle or candy canes so as to not chip a tooth or two.
Common candy offenders that can leave our teeth coated in sugar long after you’ve enjoyed them include chocolate covered pretzels, pies, marshmallow and caramel-based sweets and cookies.
Remember to brush your teeth frequently this holiday season. If you don’t have a toothbrush handy, opt for a glass of water to rinse away the acid and bacteria left behind from sticky sweets. If seasonal treats get the best of you, we’re here to help.
