Good vs. Bad Candy Options When It Comes To Healthy Teeth

BAD: Chewy,sticky candies like gummies, taffy and even dried fruit are among the worst for teeth because they get stuck in crevices and cause decay. Sour candies are also are poor choice due to the high acidity that breaks down tooth enamel.  

GOOD: Hard candies and lollipops are a better bet for teeth because they stimulate saliva to prevent a dry mouth, an ideal environment for plaque buildup.  Dark chocolate can also be a good choice because of the presence of antioxidants, which are good for the heart and lower blood pressure.  Sugar-free gum,  can also help prevent cavities by dislodging food particles from between teeth.
