Some after Halloween tips….

Beware of candies that are chewy or sticky. Caramels, sugary gum, taffy and hard candies can stick to the tooth’s surface for a longer period of time, increasing the risk of tooth decay.

After Halloween festivities, allow kids to pick out a few of their favorite types of candy. Parents can then discard the rest or donate it to a local food bank.

Candy should be viewed as a special treat, not as a substitute for healthier snacks and meals. Designate a certain time when candy is allowed, like after a meal.

The holiday season starts soon after Halloween. It’s a good time to schedule dental appointments before the hectic holiday season kicks off.

Still the best defense against tooth decay is brushing 3 times per day and also daily flossing.
