Halloween is one of the scariest holidays for teeth, but all candies are not equally frightful. Some of the sweets in your children’s treat bags have the potential to do more damage to teeth than others. If you have a sweet tooth, choose wisely.
Regardless of what kind of candy you and your children indulge in this Halloween, you can minimize the damage by following up sweets with a glass or water or a balanced meal. And, of course, brushing and flossing after meals is the best way to keep the plaque monsters at bay. Have a happy Halloween!
