Occasional sweets are fine, but eating them all the time may result in emergency dentistry

Constant sweet snacks could result in a need for emergency dentistry.People should not feel too bad about eating sweets once every so often, even though snacking on them constantly could cause emergency dentistry.

Mark Helpin, an associate professor of paediatric dentistry at Temple University, told the Huffington Post that sugary treats change the pH of the mouth.

"If I eat a piece of candy now, the pH in my mouth will become acidic and it will take 30 to 60 minutes for it to become normal," he explained.

Consequently, people who continue to eat sweets all day will not allow their mouths to return to normal and will leave themselves open to attack from acids.

However, Professor Helpin said that eating one or two pieces every so often will not do any harm, provided the person is following a proper oral hygiene routine.

In October 2010, Dr Rick Coker told KLTV.com that it is the sour, fizzy sweets that do the most damage to teeth and result in emergency dentistry.
