Depends on you: Who doesn't like chocolate? I know I do. The important thing is to understand why sweets are damaging to the teeth. It's not the sugar that causes cavities, it's the bacteria already present in all our mouths that utilize the carbohydrate (sugar) and produce acid that eats into your enamel causing cavities and decay.

Is it okay to eat candy once in a while? I never intake sweets and its been 4 years since I've eaten candy, chocolate, drinking soda, etc.

Is it okay to eat candy once in a while? I never intake sweets and its been 4 years since I've eaten candy, chocolate, drinking soda, etc.

Absolutely: I'm a dentist & a chocoholic (with moderation of course). Some candy and snacks are worse than others. It is all dependent upon frequency of use, time in contact with teeth, and type of candy or snack. Sticky snacks and long lasting ones such as breath mints, lollipops, caramels, etc are bad. Chocolate washes away quickly and is not so bad. When you can't brush & floss, at least rinse afterwards. ...Read more
