Which Halloween Candy Is Worst for My Teeth?
Whether you purchased more than you ended up handing out, or your children brought home massive bags of treats, most of us find ourselves with leftover Halloween candy. And you might be wondering: Is it all the same, or is some worse for my teeth than others?
As far as your teeth are concerned, sticky (taffy, caramel) or hard candies are some of the hardest on your teeth. Chocolate is often preferable.
Of course there are two other things you’ll want to keep in mind. First, it’s one thing to eat a lot of candy on Halloween night, but if you continue to consume the leftovers all month long, you’ll be exposing your teeth to more sugar. Second, anytime you eat candy, you want to make sure you properly brush and floss your teeth.
