How Dark Chocolate Positively Helps Your Oral Health

Posted on 4/20/2020 by Sandra Embree
For all your life you have probably heard that candy has a severe negative impact on your teeth. If you eat chocolate, surely you will get cavities extremely quickly right? Not so fast! While chocolate with a high sugar content will not do many favors for your oral health, dark chocolate is both delicious and actually has health benefits for your teeth.The Benefits Of Dark ChocolateUnlike a lot of other treats, dark chocolate is relatively low in sugar, cocoa makes up most of the ingredients and depending on how high the percentage of the chocolate is (typically labeled on the front of the package) the resulting sugar content will be less in the end.

This component is also able to aid in helping prevent periodontal disease; an infection of the tissues that hold your teeth.
