Tip #2: Candy

Kids love candy….it’s a fact! And while no treat is good for your teeth, some are better than others!
One study found that kids who eat gummy bears had less plaque on their teeth than those who didn’t!

Tip #3: Water

Staying hydrated is essential for good oral health. Not only will drinking water help rinse away foods, but it helps ensure your body can produce enough saliva to fill 2 swimming pools in your lifetime. It’s also needed to keep your mouth healthy and aid in digestion.
So drink up!

Brushing twice a day, flossing once, and regular visits to your dentist are the best ways to take care of your teeth!
