Avoid Tooth Decay This Halloween

Happy Halloween, tonight is the night all the kids get dressed up in there favorite costumes and go trick or treating around the neighborhood to collect all that delicious candy! Be careful of  all the ghosts and goblins out there and watch out for the yummy sugary treats that your child may consume as this could lead to tooth decay.

If you follow these simple steps it will help ease your mind, instead of worrying about your child's teeth.

  • Do moderate portions, don't let them have free access to the candy bucket.
  • Make sure your child brushes their teeth properly 2-3 times a day.
  • Have your child use a fluoride mouth wash.
  • Help your child floss their teeth.
  • Try to avoid sticky candy (caramel, taffy)
  • Give you kids sugar free gum to chew
Have a fun and safe Halloween!
