Did you know today is National Donut Day? That means millions of Americans around the country will be visiting their local bakery for some delicious donuts. We’re even celebrating here at Delta Dental of Minnesota!
Even though donuts are one of the most tasty foods to ever be created, it’s important to keep your oral health in mind after consuming the sugary treat.
Donuts are mostly all sugar (that’s why they’re SO GOOD), so it’s important to brush your teeth shortly after eating the donut. Proper brushing lasts 2 minutes, so don’t cut your brushing session short!
If you’re stuck at the office without a toothbrush, you can help remove some of the sugar on your teeth by drinking tap water and sloshing the water around in your mouth for a few seconds. But once you’re home, brush your teeth!
