We love celebrating Halloween at Anthem Dentistry! This year our team dressed up for Prom and danced the night away!
Candy is bad for your teeth, no matter what kind you choose. But we also know that on Halloween, it's hard to resist not eating them. That's why the Anthem Dentistry team teaches you a few things to keep in mind:
Chocolate is your best bet. It's one of the best candies because it comes off your teeth easier than other types. Sticky candy sticks to your teeth, so your teeth are exposed to the sugar longer. Hard candies dissolve slowly, and the sugar stays in the mouth longer. Sour candies are acidic. The acidity can weaken teeth and make them more vulnerable to decay. With this in mind, eat candy! But take care of your teeth. Brush often and floss. If you don't have time to brush, rinse your mouth with water to help remove excess sugar that could damage your tooth enamel.
