When it comes to delicious candy eating, it’s not the amount of sugar your child eats that will have a negative effect, but the amount of time sugars stick around. If sugars spend a lengthy amount of time on the teeth, bacteria will have more time to break them down and produce harmful acids. Encourage your Little Hero to brush his or her teeth soon after eating candy and do your best to replace these sugary treats with fruit whenever possible.
The fight against those ravenous Sugarbugs can be tricky, but our Sidekicks are here to help your Little Hero every step of the way. For more information about our oral care services, contact Little Heroes Pediatric Dentistry in Mission today!
