Valentine Candy to Avoid
 

It is probably unrealistic to expect patients of all ages to avoid candy altogether during Valentine’s Day, and believe it or not, some candy is better than others when it comes to dental health. Here are varieties of Valentine candy to avoid:

Hard Candy – Suckers are a popular treat on Valentine’s Day, especially with kids, but basically give their teeth a sugar bath.

Sticky Candy – The kinds of treats that stick to the surfaces of your teeth – like Laffy Taffy and caramels – promote tooth decay simply from being difficult to remove.

Cheap Chocolate – If you want a chocolate fix, the cheap – and even mid-priced varieties – contain sugar and oil as the first two ingredients, then cocoa butter and chocolate.

ALL OF US AT OSMANSKI DENTAL WISH YOU THE HAPPIEST OF VALENTINE'S DAYS!
