Trick or Treat, Brush Your Teeth!

It is almost here. The day kids love, and dentists hate—Halloween.  But don’t be scared because here are some tricks that will make everyone happy!


  1. Johns Lollipops

Made by a dentist, sugar free, and all natural.  These also contain xylitol, a sugar alternative that is good for the teeth!


  1. Halloween Pretzels

Snyder’s and Utz both make mini bags of Halloween pretzels.  A practical treat because quick to eat and fills up little bellies!


  1. Stickers or Temporary Tattoos

A lot of children have food allergies so an easy way to avoid the risk all together!


  1. Chocolate

Gummies and sticky candy get stuck in the deep crevices of the back teeth and with their high sugar content are major culprits in cavity formation.  Chocolate, instead, washes off the teeth.


  1. Brush and Floss

Brush for at least two minutes with a fluoridated toothpaste and floss between each tooth.  Don’t forget that children need assistance until 8 years old with their oral hygiene!


If all else fails, go to the dentist.
