Every Halloween our kids collect loads of candy and eat as much as they can before going to bed. Dr. Sherri Worth has some tips to “save the teeth” from the sugary candy that surrounds Halloween. First, have a good dinner before the big night so that you and your kids will have nutrients to start of the evening of sugary treats. Make sre that the kids (and yourselves) are drinking plenty of water. If you can influence your kids to rinse out intermittently with water to “flush the sugar bugs away,” it will help to keep the sugar from resting in the grooves of your teeth. Brush your teeth and your children;s teeth well before going to bed. PLEASE! Do not take the sugary candy to your room or to bed with you.
