When giving your children candy on halloween, here are a few tips:
1) Rinse after eating candy
2) Eat cheese or milk after eating candy to help neutralize the acidic pH in the mouth
3) Stay away from sticky or sour candies
4) Wait at least 20mins after eating candy before they brush their teeth
5) Brush really well before bed and floss!
Happy Halloween and Trick or Treating!
