Make Movie Snacking More Teeth Friendly

Now, for those of you like like to snack during movies (Which is, like, everyone. Just admit it) we couldn’t let our dental implant patients run off without first giving a few tips on how to make movie snacking more teeth friendly.

First off, try and avoid long-lasting hard candies. These make the acid attack on your teeth longer than it needs to be. If you must have candy during a movie, try to pick a softer one that can be chewed quickly and swallowed. Second, opt out for the super-sized soda. Just drink a regular sized one or have water instead. By doing this not only will you be avoiding numerous tablespoons of sugar, but you will most likely save yourself a mid-movie trip to the bathroom. And for you popcorn lovers, just make sure you floss afterwards. Popcorn is notorious for getting stuck in between your teeth. Other than that, go have a night on the town and take a friend to the theatre!

Are you thinking date night? We’re thinking date night. *Suggestive eyebrow raise and whistle*

Until next time reader, go see a movie and keep smiling.
