Cavity-fighting candy helps promote dental health
Updated: 11/4/2008 4:00:21 PM

Cavity-fighting candy helps promote dental health Most people think of candy as something detrimental to dental health. However, one oral biologist claims that he has developed a sweet treat that will actually help fight cavities.

Dr Israel Kleinberg told Ivanhoe Broadcast News that his fluoride-free candy protects dental health by increasing the mouth's pH levels to neutralize acid, as well as preserving the minerals in tooth enamel.

The creation is the result of several years of research investigating how saliva works to benefit dental health, then attempting to mimic - and improve on - this process.

"[It's] like if you've got a swimming pool. You have got to get the pH right. If you've got a neutral pH, you've got the ideal condition," he told the news provider.

An amino acid known as arginine works in combination with calcium in the product's main ingredient to deposit a layer of protection upon teeth.

Kleinberg said that in preliminary studies, kids who ate two of the candies twice per day over the course of a year reduced their cavity incidence by 68 percent.

The American Dental Association has said that saliva offers some of the most effective protective benefits against tooth decay.
