You probably guessed right. Hard candy is the worst, along with chewy candy like taffy, caramel, and gummy worms, which get stuck in teeth!
Our recommendation on Halloween is to choose chocolate! Encourage your kids to save their treats to eat as dessert after meals rather than as mid-day snacks. And then, of course, brushing and flossing teeth as soon as possible after eating will help prevent cavities. Parents can set the example by letting their kids know they are on their way to brush their teeth when they stand up from the dinner table.
Happy Halloween from Creedmoor Family Dentistry!
