While planning for Valentine’s Day the first thing that comes to your mind is probably chocolates and candy 🍫💝🍬🍭
If you are going for sweets this Valentine’s Day we reccomend staying away from chewy or hard chocolates and candies. Although chocolates with chewy sticky caramels or candies that are sweet and sour may hold a special place in your heart they can be dangerous for your teeth!
Candies that are hard, especially suckers, basically give your teeth a sugar bath. Sticky and sour candies are acidic which is harmful to your teeth. Hard chocolates will stick to your teeth less than something with a gooey center however, if you can avoid the extra sugar by cutting out these Valentines treats you can show your teeth some love!! 🤍
Instead of sweets you can give your loved ones..
* Flowers or plants 🌷💐🌱🌿
* Fruit arrangements 🍓🍎🍉
* A spa day 🧖🏻♀️💅🏼💇🏻♀️
* Teeth whitening at the Smile Place! 🦷
Lastly, always remember to show your self some love and take care of your oral health which is connected to your overall health. Make YOU a priority and brush, floss and rinse 😬
