After having all that fun and eating candy remember to brush and floss before you go to bed.
Each year Americans spend nearly $9 billion on candy. In October, much of that candy ends up on the teeth of the 41 million trick-or-treating children ages 5 – 14 across the U.S. When it comes to keeping children’s teeth healthy, not all treats are created equal.
“The longer teeth are exposed to sugars, the longer cavity-causing bacteria have to feed on them. Instead of gummy, sticky candy, offer children candy that melts and disappears quickly – like chocolate. Always make sure children brush and floss their teeth before going to bed.
Happy Halloween!!! From all of us at Firehouse Kid’s Dentistry
