Do you want your child to think more about their smile this Halloween? If so, you have come to the right blog! Our dentist, Dr. Robert A. Bell, is happy to give you the tips you need so your child can focus a little more on their chompers. That way they can have a healthier Halloween this year and many years ahead.

The first tip is to challenge your child to carve their pumpkin like a tooth. It doesn’t have to be an ordinary tooth—it can be a tooth dressed up as Dracula, the Tooth Fairy, a witch, a cowboy, or even Frankenstein! There are fun tooth pumpkin carving stencils available to print on the American Dental Association’s website along with other fun Halloween coloring pages and activities.

The second tip is to inspire your child to keep their smile in mind when they are gathering candy as they trick-or-treat. Remind them that chewy, sticky, sugary, and acidic candies can hurt the teeth, so it’s best to stick to candy that isn’t as scary for the smile. Some candies to avoid include gummy worms, sour candies, suckers, Starbursts, jawbreakers, and Laffy Taffy.
