Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and the team at FastNewSmile are here to remind you to make your special day one that keeps you smiling. Some of the main staples of Valentine’s Day include bouquets of flowers, brightly colored cards, wine, and romantic dinners.
Although many of these seemingly normal gifts on the holiday are tried and true traditions, they can be killers on the teeth and lead to premature teeth implants due to poor oral health or excess of sugars. At FastNewSmile, we believe in enjoying the holidays with a healthy twist so that patients with teeth implants and dentures alike, can enjoy in festivities without any worries.
Go Dark This Year
Valentine’s Day has always been about the candy, but it is a well-known fact that candies can have a negative impact on oral health over time. An example of how sugars can have an impact on teeth can be seen in even a simple mint habit. Perpetual sucking of hard candies and milk chocolate treats can easily lead to the need for teeth implants.
One way to keep the sweet train at the station this holiday is to buy your significant other a small heart-shaped box of dark chocolates. Dark chocolate is filled with several health benefits that include antioxidants. Dark chocolate has also been a proven way to help prevent tooth decay for people that enjoy sweet treats.
Fruit is Always a Winner
For those who already have teeth implants or are currently using dentures, although chocolate sounds like a great idea for Valentine’s Day, you’ll want to be extra sparing on the sweets; so, why not just keep the treats natural?
One extremely romantic gesture that is always a healthy winner is chocolate covered strawberries. Combining these with a nice, champagne or small glass of red wine is a great way to maintain the mood of the evening.
While on the topic of getting romantic while staying implant and denture comfortable, consider cooking your Valentine’s Day meal with some fruits that are considered by many to be exotic and romantic.
Fruits that simply spell out the word love include:
After the fruit, a few almonds mixed with honey is also a romantic gesture to many people that is teeth implant friendly.
Cheese and Crackers
For a teeth healthy snack on Valentine’s Day, selecting a few choice cheeses served with crackers is always a great way to set a romantic mood before the big date dinner starts.
Some select choices of cheeses for the special day include:
- Brillo Pecorinp DiVino
- Saint Andre
