When most of us think
Sugar doesn't directly cause cavities and lead to tooth decay. Instead, the bacteria and acid resulting from sugar-laden snacks cause these dental issues. When children eat sugar and don't clean their teeth and mouths afterward, bacteria feed off the sugar that remains stuck to the teeth. This process results in acid and plaque
While you can reduce your child's sugar intake, this isn't all you can do to protect their teeth and dental health. It's also essential to make sure they have water with snacks, rinse out their mouths, and practice good oral hygiene in general.
