Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, this weekend to be exact! Here is a dual purposed reminder; to those of you who completely forgot about the fact that it’s Valentine’s Day this weekend and have yet to make any plans for your significant other, now is the time to get into gear. Secondly, remember that this particular holiday is largely focused on sweet treats.
Sugar and good dental health have never really gone hand in hand. Completely avoiding all items that contain elevated levels of sugar is always the best option, but can be very unrealistic for many people. The key is to moderate your intake that way when holidays such as Valentine’s come around you won’t feel like you’re missing out on something.
In order to satisfy your sweet tooth this Valentine’s Day and beyond, consider treats that are dark chocolate based. Dark chocolate is great for your health and not as sweet as other chocolate options. This way you and your sweetie can still enjoy tasty sweets, and your teeth (and your Ottawa dentist) will thank you!
