Those who celebrate Valentine’s Day spend an average of $1 billion on chocolate every February 14th! And that’s just on chocolate alone, not to mention flowers, teddy bears, and jewelry.
Luckily, chocolate is high on the list of candy that won’t ruin your dental health. Obviously, moderation is still key, but chocolate is much preferred over hard candy that can crack the teeth or sticky candies that can pull off dental crowns or fillings.
Below are a few reasons why chocolate isn’t as harmful as other candies:
Chocolate still contains sugar, so it’s important to practice good at-home dental hygiene after eating chocolate. To avoid tooth decay and dental cavities, make sure to brush at least twice a day for two minutes, floss every day, and visit Severance Dental every 6 months for a dental cleaning and a checkup.
From everyone here at Severance Dental, we want to wish our patients a Happy Valentine’s Day. To make an appointment here at our Severance, Colorado family dental office, please give us a call today!
