What we eat and drink affects our oral health. Eating sticky foods should be avoided as much as possible. Soft sweets, chocolate and candies, pop corns and other foods and snacks that are likely to stick on our teeth cause decay in the teeth. Sticky foods feed the disease causing bacteria, plaque.
Therefore Halloween candies are a threat to our oral health. They are sugary and the most common source of plaque. Plaque is the resultant by product of bacteria formed on the teeth. Sugar feeds the bacteria which causes tooth decay.
