Got a Sweet Tooth?
Hundreds of pounds of halloween candy is being consumed this season – do you have the will power to eat it in moderation? Before the holiday season is here, make sure to check your healthy habits and understand how all those sweets affect your teeth. It’s also very important to teach children health habits at a young age and educate them on the effects of sugar on their teeth.
Everything we eat and drink has bacteria in it, but sugary sweets contain more bacteria. This bacteria can buildup and cause plaque. When plaque builds up and is not cared for with a good oral hygiene routine, it can cause tooth decay and cavities.
Sugar can be enjoyed in moderation and it’s important to brush and floss your teeth after consumption. Make brushing fun and not a chore — share this video with your children and sing together!
