Attack Of The Gummi Bear

Yumaaffordable family dentist

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ, we never like to be the bearers of bad news, but we are devoted to our patients’ oral health. In this blog post, we offer an essential warning about a lesser-known danger of sticky candy.

Most people know that sugar is not your teeth’s friend. Eating candy creates the perfect environment for detrimental cavity-causing bacteria to thrive in your mouth.

Did you know that the physical toll of chewing on sticky candy can lead to (or aggravate) a jaw condition called Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD)? The jaw is a delicate joint and sticky candy increases stress and the possibility of taking it out of alignment.

TMJ/TMD issues can usually be treated with non-invasive methods. Please call us at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ to find out more. People from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton also come to our practice for complete general dentistry services. Call today!
