It’s okay to pig out on your candy all at one time!

Halloween is right around the corner! Here are helpful tips and facts to keep good oral hygiene this season: ---Brush your teeth 2 or more times a day! The sugar from the candy will make you more prone to cavities. ---Don’t constantly have candy in your mouth throughout the day! It’s the frequency of sugar that causes cavities not the amount. The more often your teeth are exposed to sugar from candy the more likely you will get cavities. So pig out on your candy all at one time! ---Beware, sticky chewy candies can pull out fillings. ---Avoid biting hard candies! They can break a tooth or a crown.
