We all know that sweets cause cavities. While brushing your teeth, flossing and using mouth wash are some crucial ways to maintain a healthy body, there are certain candies that are more harmful than others.

The extended chewing and lingering time also means extended contact with your teeth, constantly bathing your teeth with sugar and feeding cavity-causing bacteria. Of course, you can still enjoy all these candies when you go trick-or-treating, but remember to brush and floss accordingly and enjoy in moderation so that later you are not suffering from the inevitable sugar rush or worse: the long, not-so-sweet dentist appointment!
