Worst Candies For Teeth

It always seems like the good things in life are always unhealthy, and totally bad for you. Of course Halloween must be a nightmare for parents, and leave it to dentists to give us something more to be concerned about.

In their eyes, all candy is bad, but there are some candies that cause so many problems that they’re in a class all by themselves.

Here’s a rundown from The New York Daily News of the absolute worst candies for kids’ teeth:

  • Super-Sticky Taffy Bars – They stick to all the nooks and crannies in your teeth and sadly no amount of brushing can get the junk off.
  • Gobstoppers and Blow Pops– They’re really just hard “rocks” of candy that kids tend to bite down on, putting them at risk of breaking teeth.
  • Gummi Bears, Twizzlers, Tootsie Rolls and Skittles– All the good stuff, candies that stay in the mouth for a long time.

Amazingly, the best candy for kids’ teeth is a plain chocolate candy, such as a Hershey kiss because the sugar is more likely to wash away with the mouth’s saliva.

Have you ever had a candy tragedy? Broken teeth? Bad cavities?
