Halloween only happens once a year, and since it is occasional, parents and children do their best to prepare for it. Not only do they provide costumes, but also goodies which are commonly candies. It is expected that children would become excited that they may tend to eat everything they will receive. Despite the fun, these actions can potentially damage their teeth which is why you should know these steps to prevent it from happening:

Limit the Consumption

Guarantee that you are not letting your child eat the treats all at once. The more they eat, the more acids will be produced in the mouth. It is a significant factor that causes tooth decay.

Teaching and Explaining

Teaching and Explaining

Teach your child the pros and cons of eating sweets, when to eat them and when to stop. Allow him to know and realize that overconsumption will only damage their teeth. Explain why they must learn to restrain and take good care of their teeth. 


Receiving many goodies this Halloween brings genuine happiness to your child, yet there is nothing better than sharing it with others, especially those unable to join. It doesn't mean you are taking away the fun. You are also teaching him the importance of giving.

Brushing the Teeth

Always remind your child to brush their teeth twice a day. Do not let the sugar stay in their mouth for a long time as it may start to build up some cavities. You can also let them drink fluoridated water for stronger and healthy teeth.
