Quick Tips for a Healthier Trick or Treat Night

Halloween might be a favorite time for your family, but it’s a scary night for your family dentist. Too many sugary candies can lead to plaque and tooth decay, and it won’t be a treat to take your kids to the dental office in Middletown or Walden for a filling. Fortunately, you don’t have to give up Halloween fun to prevent dental disasters.

Watch this video for tips on keeping teeth healthy during Halloween. Say no to suckers, which bathe the teeth in sugar for an extended period of time, and gummy candies, which stick to the teeth. Chocolate is a better choice for candy. Be extra-vigilant about limiting sugar from other food sources during Halloween, so your kids’ teeth don’t get overexposed to the sweet stuff.
