Halloween night is a fun time for you to spend time with your kids and take them out trick or treating with their friends. We know that Halloween is a child’s favorite day of the year and while our dentists here at Sealy Dental Center in Sealy dont want to take away from the fun, we also want to ensure that you are keeping a healthy mouth! Dr. Zboril wants to ensure that you are following all of the tips and tricks below that are provided for our patients here at Sealy Dental Center.
The stickier the candy (caramel, taffy, etc), the longer they stay on the teeth causing decay.
Chewing sugar-free gum after meals can help reduce tooth decay
Avoid biting into a hard candy- this can break off your tooth!
Try to eat candy with meals and drink water afterward
Don’t brush immediately after eating candy since that can remove the softened tooth enamel. Wait at least 30 minutes
Better options are chocolate bars, chocolate-covered items, small hard candies, and licorice
If you are going out on Halloween night first things first, have fun! Next, make sure to follow our tips and tricks so you can enjoy the day while also being preventative.
