Halloween is only two weeks away which means easy access for Children to a broad range of sugary treats.

Here are DeCare’s top tips to keep those Halloween smiles healthy:

Halloween is only two weeks away which means easy access for Children to a broad range of sugary treats.
  1. Eat Halloween treats with meals or shortly after meals. Saliva production increases during meals and helps cancel out acids produced by bacteria in your mouth and helps rinse away food particles.
  2. Avoid hard/sticky sweets that stay in your mouth for a long time. The length of time that sugary food is in your mouth plays a vital role in tooth decay. Hard sweets can crack and break your teeth so try to avoid.
  3. Avoid sugary drinks as the risk of tooth decay increases every time we drink them and remember to drink plenty of water.
  4. Go trick-or-treating on a full stomach, this will limit the urge to eat all the Halloween treats in one go.
  5. Remember to brush twice a day for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste (aged 2+)

Happy Halloween from all at DeCare Dental!
