Your Tooth-Friendly Guide to Easter Candy

Easter is just around the corner, and we all know what that means: candy. Jellybeans, chocolate bunnies, Peeps in every shape and size – this time of year, candy is everywhere, Of course, as much as we love munching on Easter candy, these treats are not good for our teeth.

If you have kids in your household (and even if you don’t), Easter candy can be awfully tempting. It’s so easy to grab a snack or two while setting up an Easter egg hunt! But if you want to protect your teeth this spring, use our advice to have a tooth-friendly holiday.

Believe it or not, there are candies out there that are good (well… better) for your teeth! For example, dark chocolate with 75% cocoa or more can help strengthen your tooth enamel. If you’re going to indulge in something sweet this Easter, look for a dark chocolate treat.

Another great snack option is any candy bar with nuts. Nuts can help break up the plaque on your teeth, scrubbing away the bacteria that causes cavities as you chew. Also, some candy bars with nuts have a lower sugar content than pure chocolate bars, which is always better for your oral health.

Finally, one of the best ways to prevent cavities this spring (or any time of year) is to visit your dentist for your regular checkup and cleaning. If you’re in the Jacksonville, FL area, call Point Meadows Dentistry to schedule an appointment for the entire family!
