INDULGING YOUR SWEET TOOTH
It’s okay to eat sweets and other sugary foods in moderation. Here are some tips to help protect your teeth from decay while enjoying your Easter basket favorites:
- Choose dark over milk chocolate.
Dark chocolate contains an ingredient called CBH, which can
help harden tooth enamel. Go for a bar that is 70% cacao or
- Limit sticky and hard candies.
Lollipops and caramels take more time to eat, exposing your
teeth to sugars longer. Don’t let these candies be the focus
of your Easter basket.
- Eat sweets with a meal.
Saliva flow increases during meals and can help reduce the
effect of sugar acids found in your favorite foods.
- Brush twice a day with Aquafresh®.
Aquafresh® Toothpaste strengthens your tooth enamel against
tooth decay and cavities caused by sugar acid. So, don’t forget
to add Aquafresh® to your Easter basket!
