Enjoy Your Candy During or After Your Meal
Eating candy or sweets while eating a meal helps because you produce more saliva when eating. More saliva helps to naturally “wash” away sugar that can sometimes remain on gums and/or dentures. Getting rid of the sugar will help keep Dentures clean and your gums healthy.
