3 Types of Halloween Candy That Can Hurt Your Child’s Teeth

Dentist Brooklyn NYTRICK OR TREAT! That’s right, it is almost that time of year again when the witches and pumpkins come knocking on your door for candy. Halloween is just around the corner and we know you are excited to help your child pick out their costume, but you might also be concerned with how much candy your child is going to eat. As you know, candy is not ideal for anyone’s teeth, but certain types of candy are worse.

Hard Candy- Your child might try to chew hard candy, which can break their teeth. Be on the lookout when your child is eating lollipops and other hard candy, so they don’t chip a tooth.

Gummies- When it comes to gummies, they are very acidic which wears down enamel the fastest.

Sticky Candy- If it sticks to your child’s fingers, then it will stick to their teeth. When candy sticks to your child’s teeth, it can start breaking down the enamel.
