Easter Candies: Bad For Your Teeth

Easter Candies: Bad For Your Teeth

Posted by Dr. Lee on Mar 3 2022, 06:13 AM

Easter is always our favorite holiday — hunting for eggs, anticipating the Easter Bunny, and indulging in delectable Easter candy. However, we also know that many of the best Easter treats are bad for your health and teeth, particularly for children's soft baby teeth. East Burn Dentistry and Implants is here to keep your oral health at its best.

Why Should You Avoid Easter Candies?

It's Easter again, and store shelves are brimming with pastel-colored candies. These treats come in a variety of soft, hard, chewy, and multicolored forms, ranging from chocolate bunnies to marshmallow chicks. However, as tempting as they may appear, they are typically high in added sugars and artificial colorings. 

In order of least to most unhealthy, here are some of the worst things to watch out for this April:

  • They will stick to your teeth
  • They activate bacterial action, eventually wearing away the enamel
  • Candies contain acid
  • They contain high sugar

Easter Candies That Are Most Harmful to Your Oral Health

  • Bubble Bubble Eggs
  • Palmer Little Beauty Chocolate Bunny
  • Bradbury Creme Egg
  • Peeps Rainbow Pop
  • Whoppers Robin Eggs
  • Bunny Tail Lane Grape Cotton Candy
  • Brach's Classic Jelly Bird Eggs
  • Skittles Easter Eggs
  • Russell Stover White Pastelle Bunny
  • Reese's Pieces in Carrot Bags
  • Hard Candy
  • Candy Cone

Candy is meant to be a delight. But even when eaten in amounts beyond moderation, some varieties are unhealthy. To enjoy your sweets while remaining healthy, limit candy that is high in sugar, unhealthy fats, and artificial ingredients.
