Is Dark Chocolate Really Healthy for Your Teeth?

Posted on 8/24/2020 by Office
Whether there's a celebratory event happening or it's just another ordinary day at the office, chocolate seems to make the day better. But if you're wanting to make a healthier choice, then dark chocolate is your best bet. Dark chocolate doesn't just taste good as a treat, it has great oral health benefits too. Let's take a look at how dark chocolate can help improve your teeth and gums, by promoting great oral health. Dark Chocolate and Oral Health Most people are aware that dark chocolate boasts some health benefits, but not everyone knows just how great it is for your teeth and gums. But does this mean that we can eat dark chocolate more often? Short answer – yes. Even though dark chocolate has its health benefits, it should only be enjoyed in moderation, just like everything else. Dark chocolate may be healthy and loaded with antioxidants, but that doesn't mean you can eat dark chocolate all day long. Studies have shown that dark chocolate is a powerful fighter against cavities, in addition to reducing risk of heart disease, improving moods, and helping prevent cancer. If you consume dark chocolate in small amounts, it can help protect your whole body. As dark chocolate is a brilliant source of polyphenols, it can protect your teeth and gums against plaque and tooth decay. This works as a protection because polyphenols limit the oral bacteria which protects you against sugar turning into acid and attacking your tooth enamel. There is no reason why your favorite treats cannot be enjoyed. Everything is good in moderation and there is no such thing as 'bad food' if it's consumed responsibly with your health in mind. But if you are going to eat chocolate, make it dark chocolate! To find out more about our dental services, contact our office today....
