Trick or Treat! Brush your teeth, flossing keeps your teeth on fleek!
Halloween is just around the corner. We all love candy and we know how it can linger around the house for weeks after Halloween. When craving it, it is better to eat chocolate after a main meal versus throughout the day. Eating a meal produces more saliva which helps neutralize acids. When you are constantly snacking throughout the day, you are constantly bathing your teeth in acid. Now I'm not saying don’t eat those sweets! Just make sure you eat them after a main meal versus in between meals. The amount you eat doesn’t matter, it's how often. Now when faced with the frightening dilemma between a sour patch or a kit kat, its always best to go with chocolate as chewy candy is sticky which can get stuck in between your teeth. Rinse your mouth with water, brush your teeth, and don’t forget to FLOSS! Dress up, enjoy Halloween! Be responsible when enjoying sweet treats and have fun this Halloween!
