Avoid Tooth Decay While Feasting On Halloween Candy

Halloween is Almost Here!!

Halloween is a celebration of make-believe, pumpkins, autumns and most of all…candy. While kids wait all year long for this holiday for endless sugar, it can be a nightmare for parents. Candy usually contains sugar, which is the perfect environment for breeding bacteria that causes tooth decay.

Tips for Protecting Children’s Teeth at Halloween

  • Examine your child’s candy before he/she begins to dig in to see if it meets your approval
  • Avoid sticky candy such as taffy, gummy bears, caramel etc. Sticky candy adheres to the teeth and leads to tooth decay.
  • Prior to Halloween visit your dentist to have sealants put into the child’s teeth grooves. This protects tooth enamel against corrosion caused by excess sugar.
