Children look forward to becoming ghouls and ghosts, princesses and fairies, and vampires and superheroes this Halloween, but in addition to the costumes and excitement of the night, most children also look forward to the one thing that parents and dentists dread: candy. The sweet treats your child eats this Halloween put their teeth at risk for developing cavities, but some candy is worse for your oral hygiene than others. In a featured Everyday Health article titled, “Five Halloween Treats that Scare Your Dentist,” Dr. Timothy Chase of SmilesNY lists his top 5 scary Halloween candies to avoid. Children should rinse their mouths after eating and wait 30 minutes before brushing, so the mouth’s pH can return to normal.
