Our Raleigh dentist offers tips for choosing healthier candy for your teeth’s sake!
Your Raleigh dentist, Dr. Katherine Garrett, knows just how good those candies can be. Candy is a sweet tooth’s delight, but it also can be a sweet tooth’s disaster. Here are some of the better candy choices for your love, and your Raleigh dentist.
Sugar Free Gum: Gum increases saliva production just like food does in order to help with cleaning. Many sugar free gums contain the chemical xylitol which is actually a healthier choice for your teeth.
Dark Chocolate: Dark Chocolate contains a lot of antioxidants which are good for blood flow and lower blood pressure. While chocolate contains a lot of sugar, dark chocolate is not left in the mouth for a long time, as it melts almost immediately. Lollypops on the other hand, can be left in the mouth for a long time.
Other ideas: Sugar free chocolate, peppermints, truffles and more! With more and more folks concerned about their health the options grow all the time. Browse around your town (Raleigh, NC) or otherwise and see for yourself. Your Raleigh dentist loves peppermints.
