Compared to other sweets products, is candy really that bad?
Before you get mad at the kids this Halloween for the scattered tootsie roll wrappers and chocolate finger prints, consider that candy isn’t as bad for your kids’ teeth as the Pepsi they’re about to drink. The Cypress Creek Mirror reports that eating a lot of candy can only cause a tummy ache if it’s just for a night. A good teeth brushing will take care of most plaque caused by October indulgence.

Compared to other sweets products, is candy really that bad?

The real culprit, though, is soda pop. The sugary, acidic drink, while bubbly and tasty, can do some real damage to your little monster’s chompers.

Dentists say that soda pop is worth for teeth than candy.

Live Science says, “The erosive potential of colas is 10 times that of fruit juices in just the first three minutes of drinking, a study last year showed.”

While Halloween is just for a night, it’s important to teach good teeth cleaning habits to kids.

+ Brush teeth after every meal
+ Help kids brush until about 7 or 8 years old
+ Schedule regular check ups with the dentist
+ Use a soft-bristled brush and replace regularly
