3 Ways To Minimize Candy Intake At Parties

Oral health guidance from dentists in Chattanooga.

At Chattanooga Center for Comprehensive Dentistry, we understand how hard it is to avoid sweets altogether at Halloween and other sugar-filled holidays. We encourage both unfettered joy and healthy living for all of our patients. Otherwise, here are three ways to avoid candy altogether:

  1. Lock yourself in a closet.
  2. Sew your mouth shut.
  3. Wear a shock collar that’s sensitive to sugar particles.

Moderation in candy intake can help with the prevention of tooth decay, but so can consistent brushing and flossing and regular cleanings and check-ups at your dentist. Keeping the mouth clean and observing appropriate oral hygiene are strong indicators of oral health.

We’re not here to tell our patients to avoid sugar altogether. We’re not even here to tell you just to sneak a little. Eat as much as your child will let you, just be sure and brush effectively. Keep in mind that eating a candy bar and then brushing is better than sucking on a lollipop for a half hour.
