Taking care of your teeth doesn’t have to be a difficult chore. However, during various times of the year, you may need to exercise extra caution. Halloween is one of those times. Not only should you continue to clean your teeth every day, but exercise caution with the products you eat and what activities you partake in.

During the season of sweets, it is often the case that individuals consume excessive amounts of sugary sweets. Instead, opt out of the sweets in exchange for healthy treats that will benefit both your body and your smile. If you do decide to enjoy your sweets this holiday season, remove the candies and snacks that are most hazardous to your health.

Be aware of products that can chip or crack your teeth, such as candy apples or popcorn balls. Furthermore, avoid consuming any form of sugar, as it increases your risk for tooth decay. Always remember to clean your mouth after eating to remove debris.
