Your child's diet plays a key role in dental health. And, of course, sugar is the big villain. The longer and more frequently teeth are exposed to sugar, the greater the risk of cavities.
So keep an eye on how much candy your child eats this Halloween and follow-up with good dental habits! See these dental health and hygiene tips for young children.

Dan Brennan, M.D., CLC, FAAP
Quick Tip: 
Encourage children to have a good meal prior to trick-or-treating so there will be less temptation to fill up on candy. Taking healthy snacks along for kids to eat may help them stay full all night long. See more Halloween Safety Tips.
