The 3 Worst Kinds of Candy for Your Teeth
Just the mention of Halloween and trick-or-treating is enough to send chills down any dentist’s spine. Why do we find Halloween so scary? The candy of course. Halloween candy is not only laden with sugar but it’s also enjoyed abundantly during the season, which means all of our teeth are at risk of tooth decay and their gums are in danger of periodontal disease.

3. Sour Candy
Schedule a Post-Halloween Dental Exam and Cleaning in Kenmore
Of course, you can still enjoy Halloween treats while caring for your teeth. Limit the amount of candy your child eats each day and the amount of time they spend eating it. Be sure to rinse with water immediately after and wait 30 minutes before brushing your teeth. Then schedule a post-holiday dental exam and cleaning at Kenmore Pediatric Dentistry.
