Halloween and your teeth

It’s the season of pumpkins, scary movies, and… Candy. It’s hard to avoid the candy cravings your child has, especially after trick-or-treating. There are a few simple rules you can implement to avoid the creepy cavities that can come into your child’s life. 

Scary Stick Sweets

These delicious treats can sit and linger in your child’s teeth after consumption. If a tooth brush is not available, consuming a glass of water will help reduce the amount of sugar that resides on the teeth. Brushing will be needed, but a glass of water will help wash away the bulk of the settled sugar from candies and sweets. 

Keep others clear of the creepy cavities 

Just because others are handing out the yummy, sugary candy, doesn’t mean you have to. Providing sugar free chewing gum or sugar free candy will help children steer clear of potential cavities that may cause potential toothaches, but gives them still a tasty treat that they look forward to. Also, it will be best to monitor how much candy your child consumes to again, prevent any future problems with cavities and potential toothaches.
