And that’s okay! Celebrating and getting involved with Halloween, or treating yourself to some extra gummies is fun for both children and adults. But if you are conscious of the impact of sweet treats on your fangs, we wanted to give you some top tricks and treats to enjoy the spooky season while looking after your dental health.
Dental Hygienist Suzanne Masters from Portman’s Walker & Associates Dental and Implant Clinic in Faringdon, Oxfordshire, has outlined 7 ways to help keep your pearly whites healthy and happy:
1. Try to eat and enjoy fun size bars rather than full size. These have just as much taste but less sugar and calories
2. Try to limit the frequency of sugar consumption by eating sugary foods at mealtimes
3. Try to avoid extremely sticky or chewy sweets as they hang around on teeth for longer and are even more likely to lead to tooth decay
