Are some sugars worse than others?


Preston Dental Saskatoon Dental Clinic Services

Did you know that the type of sugar you consume can make you more likely to get cavities than other types of sugar?

For example, liquid sugars — like what you find in a soda or flavored coffee — coat your teeth and all of the grooves and crevices. The sugars seep down into hard-to-reach areas and as a result, raise your risk of decay. Sticky foods like candy that adhere to your teeth for a long time can also be “worse” on your smile than options like chocolate, which quickly melt away.
