12:26 pm
the best thing is to brush and floss after they have candy. >> not before. not during. just after. >> after. if they can brush and floss after that would be ideal. two minutes floss once a day. brush after the candy. that would be perfect. >> okay now we went through -- we went through some of the most popular ones like reese's right? they seem not to stick to your teeth as much as maybe a snicker's bar with care mel on it. >> city away from the gummy ones and sticky ones and kids are not really good about brushing really well. most kids are not that diligent. avoid those at all costs if you can. >> if you can actually. >> does something like drinking water help? >> have all the candy in one sitting than have the candy grazer all throughout the day. >> no kidding? >> because every time you have candy you create this cavity loving zone for an hour. so if you drink water it will go faster and if you chew gum it will go faster. if you just have -- like have to whole bag of m&ms at once instead of having a piece every
12:27 pm
hour. >> does the mouthwash help any of it? >> sure, sure, anything like that would sort of like wash it out. gum is really good because it takes away all the like you know -- out of the nooks and crannies and makes sure that -- increases saliva and good too. >> you can pear down the amount. >> actually send it to halloween candy buyback.com and and your dentist -- ask your dentist if they participate in it. if they don't you can put in your zip code and you take it over there and they'll actually buy it from the kids. they'll give them dollars and books and noncandy treats you know. >> so dentists do that too. sometimes a toy or toothbrush or something like that. >> depending on ha they do. >> they send it overseasth troops. >> all right alex come on. i promise to brush when i get home. have a great day. that's it for the news, we're back on tv at 5:00 and we have a really cool free news app.
