How Bad Is A Huge Candy Binge For Your Teeth?

It might come a surprise--but letting your kids binge on candy on Halloween night might actually be better for their dental health. 

Orthodontist Dr. Lilliya MacKenzie tells CHSJ News letting kids have treats all at once, instead of a little all day long, means you can make sure to brush their teeth afterward and have them drink lots of water.

If you really can't stomach the thought of your kids eating all that sugar, you could try to convince them to strike a deal with the Tooth Fairy and trade cash for treats.
