1. Sugar-free(medicated) lollipops and hard candies:

              These treats stimulate saliva, which prevents dry mouth. A dry mouth allows plaque

to build up on teeth faster, leading to an increased risk of cavities.

2. Sugar-free gum:

                  Chewing gum can actually prevent cavities, not only because it helps to dislodge food particles from the teeth, but also because it increase saliva. 
                    Saliva works to neutralize the acids of the mouth and prevent tooth decay.

3. Dark chocolate: 

                    Chocolates are loaded with sugar, but studies have shown that the antioxidants in dark chocolate can be good for heart and may even lower blood pressure. Just be sure to eat it in moderation.

4. Candy bars with nuts:

                   Candy bars with a lot of nuts can break up the stickiness, and it's the stickiness of a candy that increases chance of cavity, so having nuts (and the protein/fiber that nuts provide) can break up the "badness" of the sticky parts of the candy. Nuts can also break up some of the biofilm of the teeth.


1. Sugary snacks: 

                Candy corn, cookies, and cake all contain a high amount of sugar, which can cause tooth decay.

2. Chewy/sticky sweets: 

                 Gummy candies, taffy, and even dried fruit can be difficult for children and adults to resist, but they are a serious of tooth decay, particularly when they get stuck in the crevices between teeth and make it nearly impossible for saliva to wash away.

3. Sour candies:  

                High acid levels in these treats can break down tooth enamel quickly.
              ♥ Saliva slowly helps to restore the natural balance of the acid in the mouth. 

               Recommended to the patients wait 30 minutes to brush their teeth after consuming acidic foods or drinks, otherwise they will be brushing acid onto more tooth surfaces, increasing the erosive action.

Dental erosion

 Sugar is not actually the real offender: bacteria is the real villain. Bacteria in your mouth from sugars, food particles, and carbohydrates produces acids that eat away at the tooth enamel. A diet high in sugar and carbohydrates and without proper "brushing and flossing" can result in a higher rate of cavities.....
