Candies that improve your dental health? Yes it's happening!
Usually, what your dentist will keep repeating to all of its patients, especially the little ones, is to brush their teeth regularly, floss and avoid certain beverages and foods. The latter include fizzy drinks, sweets, snacks and so on, as these contain high doses of sugar and increase the concentration of bacteria in your mouth. Eventually, more bacteria leads to more cavities. However, seems like that's all about to change. How? Well, a German firm has come up with a revolutionary product improving your teeth's health: a candy! Researchers at this company have discovered a so-called good bacteria for teeth. Apparently, when this good bacteria binds with the bad bacteria that attack enamel and cause cavities, it neutralize the latter.

To test and prove that this good bacteria is beneficial to teeth, the researchers have produced sugar free candies containing the good bacteria. 3 groups of people were gathered for the experiment which involved handing 3 different candies to each group. The first group got candies with 1mg of the good bacteria; the second with 2 mg; the third one got regular candies not containing the bacteria.

The test results showed that the group that ate candies with the good bacteria had up to 75% lower levels of bad bacteria in their saliva. Moreover, candies stimulate the production of saliva and saliva helps keeping your mouth bacteria free.

Said that, always remember that there is no shortcut to healthy teeth. Even if this new type of candy may lower the chances of contracting cavities, you still have to follow the rules of good oral hygiene. To keep your teeth healthy and protected, wash them frequently, possibly after every meal. Floss regularly and remember to use the mouthwash only after you brushed and flossed. Mouthwashes may leave your teeth stained if used without brushing your teeth first. Professional teeth cleaning (scaling) is also recommended at least twice a year to remove plaque and tartar and reduce the chance of periodontal disease. Finally, if you do suffer from toothache or you notice a cavity, don't wait and postpone going for a check up. The earlier you get diagnosed and treated, the less the damage to your teeth.
