Is Chocolate Good For Your Teeth?

Dental Cleanings Wilmington DEThis time of year is full of sweets and candies and chocolates, which can lead to cavities and an upset tummy if we aren't careful.  BUT, there is some good news!  Scientists have recently developed a toothpaste made with a compound derived from the sweet goodness known as chocolate.  One of the active ingredients of the toothpaste, theobromine, is found in chocolate and has been shown to help remineralize enamel and decrease sensitivity, all without fluoride.  Don't start brushing with chocolate quite yet though, I'm not sure that has the same effect......

Until next time!
