A Healthy Halloween

With Halloween right around the corner, kids are getting excited about dressing up and going door-to-door to collect bags full of candy. While it can be fun for the whole family, it also means lots of sugar, and potential for damage to little teeth. Luckily, there are ways to ensure that your kids’ Halloween is a dental-friendly one!

  • Try rationing their treats to keep them from consuming too much sugar at one time. This will also help make their Halloween candy last longer, so it has an added bonus for them!
  • Certain items, like hard candies, gum, jawbreakers, etc., are more harmful than others as they can be choking hazards or easily cause damage to teeth. If you see these items in their Halloween candy it’s best to remove it, especially for younger children. Luckily, they’re not likely to notice because there are so many other treats.
  • Balance is important, to ensure that your kids are eating lots of healthy snacks in between their Halloween candies. Vegetables and fruits actually help to keep teeth clean and neutralize bacteria, so they can counteract the negatives of the candy.
  • Brushing and flossing twice per day is even more important when high amounts of candy are being consumed, as is keeping the mouth hydrated so that sugars can be brushed away and rinsed clean.

As always, keep up regular dentist appointments, to make sure your kids’ teeth continue to be healthy and clean. Visit our Markham dental office to to book with our smile team. Have a safe and happy Halloween!
