Easter is Almost Here! Your Healthy Smiles Dental Team Has Advice!
It goes without saying that pretty much everyone likes chocolate…and when a special holiday rolls around, it gives us the excuse to indulge. We’re not complaining though…are you? I mean, who can pass up a chocolate bunny, right?
So, here’s the deal … enjoy your Easter chocolate, but be sure to choose higher quality chocolate. It won’t just be better for your health (and house some antioxidants), but it will be easier on your teeth!
As long as you select dark chocolate with a cocoa percentage of 70% and above, you can reap the benefits, such as:
- Cocoa butter & more tannins that will help prevent plaque from sticking to your teeth
- Less sugar
- And like we said earlier, antioxidants!
Sure, it will cost you a bit more, but it’s worth it! Cheap chocolate is overflowing with sugar. White chocolate isn’t any better.
Choose the healthy path, and of course, be sure to brush thoroughly afterwards.
Happy Easter from the team at Healthy Smiles Family Dentistry in Surrey, BC! Book an appointment to get your teeth professionally cleaned after the long weekend: 604-593-8201.
