It is the time of year for comfy sweaters, pumpkins, and Halloween candy! As long as you are keeping your oral health in mind there is no reason you and your children cannot enjoy all this season has to offer. A few things to keep in mind.
1. Sticky and gummy candies are some of the worst for your teeth. They are harder to remove therefore giving bacteria longer to work in your mouth and increasing your chance of cavities
2. Try to time your candy indulgeces around mealtimes. Snacking throughout the day leads to longer acidic exposure for your teeth.
3. Good news! Chocolcate is probably one of your best choices since it will wash off of your teeth easier than other candies.
And Remember Brush and Floss within 20 minutes of eating to reestablish a neutral pH in the mouth and remove food!
Have a Fun and safe Halloween!
