Halloween is just around the corner, which means kids all over the country are preparing their bags and stomachs for a night of trick-or-treating! Though at least half the fun of Halloween is eating huge amounts of candy, having too much can leave your kiddo’s teeth feeling sensitive and weaker than they were before. Once the festivities are over, make sure to brush your kiddo’s teeth thoroughly with this bamboo toothbrush from Wowe.
Designed just for kids, the Eco-Friendly and Natural Bamboo Toothbrush for Children is one of Wowe’s bestsellers and the perfect green alternative to traditional plastic toothbrushes. When left to sit on and between the teeth, the sugars from Halloween candies are converted into acids by natural bacteria in the mouth. These acids work to wear away at the hard enamel layer of the tooth, creating the beginnings of a cavity.
By brushing away the residual sugars and acids, you can help your child avoid cavities, and develop good dental hygiene habits for the rest of their life!
