If you are planning on celebrating this Halloween with your loved ones, it is important to make sure that you do everything you can to keep your teeth safe from the hazards of the holidays. Along with the excessive amounts of sugar that are present in most sweets, numerous other dangers await if you are not careful.

Exercise caution with any hard candies and treats you may encounter. If you bite into hard treats, you can easily chip or crack your teeth. Beyond hard candy, popcorn balls and corn kernels can easily damage your teeth as well. Furthermore, hard candies also tend to stick to your teeth long after consumption and can be difficult to wash away.

Similar to hard candy, sticky and chewy candy such as taffy, caramels, and gummies are all likely to linger in your mouth long after you eat them. Be sure always to avoid hazardous treats altogether.

Don’t delay in practicing safe and effective treatment methods to protect your smile this Halloween season.
