It might taste great to eat a granola bar in the morning or for a snack and it is healthy for you. However, they damage your teeth just as much as candy does states Yake Kroll a periodontist based in New York City. He says many of his patients had increased tooth decay when they stated they replace lunch with power or granola bars. Why does this happen? Most of these bars have a lot of sugar in them and they are sticky. This means they stick to the teeth and the sugar destroys the teeth until it is brushed off. If you are going to replace your lunch, do so with dairy or fruit instead said this periodontist.
