When returning home from tick-or-treating, discard hard or sticky candies like sugared fruit snacks, caramels or lollipops, as they increase the period of time in which teeth are exposed to sugar. Keep treats that cause the least damage to teeth. Instead of caramels and hard candies, choose chocolates, which are swallowed quickly and don’t stick to teeth. Encourage your child to eat a small amount of candy in one sitting followed by a glass of water. Make sure they thoroughly floss and brush after their treat.
