Avoid Cavities this Halloween

Candy to avoid include gummies, caramels and sour candies. They get stuck in the grooves and crevices of the teeth making it hard for saliva to wash them away which leads to tooth decay. Sour candies have a high acidity content, which breaks down tooth enamel.

Swish and Brush!
Make sure they drink plenty of water after eating treats and encourage them to swish the water around in their mouth to help dislodge particles that can get stuck onto tiny teeth. And of course, remind them to brush their teeth before bed!
