Dear Dr. D.,
How do I keep my teeth healthy with all these Spring candies?
While peeps may be delicious in springtime, these marshmallow bunnies and chicks are at the top of my list of candies to avoid.
Any sticky candies, including peeps, can create a less hospitable environment for healthy teeth and gums.
For healthy mouths this Spring, I suggest the following:
- If you can, avoid the marshmallow candies altogether,
- Eat your treats in one sitting instead of all Spring,
- Drink plenty of water,
- Visit your dentist regularly
Don't worry! You can still enjoy those treats! Just be sure to keep your dental health in mind while enjoying them!
