cavity fighting candyIt seems like the patients who are better at flossing and brushing continue to get better at it and they do it more consistently over time.

The patients who've historically slacked at it seem to do worse over time.  There's little question that children inherit not only the genetic dental traits of their parents but the behavioral dental traits too.

If mom doesn't floss regularly it's very unlikely that the kids will either and the proof is in the mouths of the 79% of Americans who will have a filling before the age of 18.

There's no magic-bullet solution but there is a new product that's been gaining some traction in the last few years.


You've probably heard of cavity fighting lollipops and maybe even looked at the website

It may sound too good to be true. It is not.

Dr. Wenyuan Shi of UCLA didn't feel like American dentistry was hitting the mark in the battle against tooth decay. Dr. Shi chose to pursue the germs that cause decay and took a look historically at some Chinese herbs known to help.

After 50,000 trials in the lab with over 2,000 different herbs, Dr. Shi concluded that the powder extracted from licorice root, of all things, would fight bacteria the best.  

So why lollipops? Dr. Shi thinks this breakthrough will have the most potential to help the underprivileged, children especially, who lack access to dental care and may not even know why they should care for their teeth.

The lollipops are tasty, mobile, and potent so they will be easy to take to those who need them most and easy to convince people to try them

These cavity fighting lollipops will help everyone. If you or a patient uses them twice a day for 10 days out of every three months, you will both notice an improvement. Of course these lollipops aren't enough on their own. They're to be used with your suggested regimen of dental care to help your patients eliminate or at least decrease tooth decay.

Skeptics are encouraged to check out the website for some more information. You can even place an order to try them yourself.  

Fighting cavities with candy would be a sweet right click.
