Halloween & Kids’ Dental Health

With Halloween just around the corner, kids are already getting excited to go Trick or Treating: the costumes, the celebration, and, of course, all the candy. To make sure that your kids get to enjoy Halloween without negatively affecting their dental health, here are a few tips to make the holiday a great one:

Set limits: Remember when you were young, and couldn’t wait to dive into your full bag of Halloween candy? Your kids are having that same feeling. But to avoid a sugar overload (and a potential stomach ache), setting limits to how much candy they can have at a time, and when, will not only help to prevent cavities, it will also make their candy last longer.

Keep up routine: It’s more important than ever to continue your child’s daily dental routine. Make sure that they’re properly brushing twice per day, plus flossing. Skipping out on the routine at a time when there is extra sugar and build-up on their teeth could negatively affect their dental health.

Brush after eating candy: In addition to the usual daily brushing, it can also be helpful for kids to brush their teeth after eating candy. That way, they can clean away the harmful sugars and keep tooth decay at bay.

Search the candy: Before your child starts excitedly digging through their loot, take a look through what they’ve received and remove anything that may be more dental trouble than it’s worth. Especially for younger kids, hard candies and sticky treats can be harmful.

Book an after-Halloween dental cleaning: Even if your child eats their candy in moderation and keeps up with daily brushing and flossing, it’s still a good idea to come in to Southeast Dental in Markham for a proper cleaning and check-up.
