Halloween Tips & Tricks for a Healthy Smile


Posted on 10/17/2014 by Crafton Dental
Pediatric Columbia DentistWhile no sweets are good for your teeth, some Halloween candies are less harmful than others. Try purchasing these types of candies to help prevent tooth decay in yourself and children.

Sugar-free gum and candy
Some sugar-free sweets contain xylitol, which is an active ingredient that protects teeth by reducing the acids produced by bacteria. It also increases saliva to rinse away excess sugars and acids.

Chocolate
Chocolate dissolves quickly in the mouth and can be eaten fast and easy. This decreases the amount of time sugars stay in contact with teeth. However, it is best to avoid chocolates that contain caramel fillings, which tends to stick to your teeth. Also, cocoa is an active ingredient found in chocolate, which helps to prevent the growth of bacteria that leads to plaque and cavity formation.

Powdery candy
Although powdery candies contain pure sugar, it dissolves quickly and doesn't stick to your teeth.
