For most kids, Halloween means candy! While candy is certainly enjoyable to eat, it’s not good for your teeth. Candy is high in sugar, which can be harmful to the teeth and cause problems such as sensitive gums and cavities. Rather than restrict candy intake entirely, there is a happy medium. Teach moderation when it comes to eating candy and establish a good routine afterwards, like brushing and flossing – and visit your dentist regularly to review proper oral hygiene techniques.
