Halloween is one of the most exciting holidays of the year for children. Free candy just by dressing up as their favorite scary character is not exactly a hard sell for the average 5- to 11-year-old. While Halloween is synonymous with chocolate, costumes and terror, safety should also be a key component of the holiday. Visiting houses for candy in the dark can easily lead to a bad fall (1 in 4 kids get hurt while trick-or-treating.) Increased candy consumption will dramatically increase the risk of tooth decay (1 in 5 children aged to 5 to 11 have at least one untreated decayed tooth.)
That’s why a pediatric dentist in Maspeth is prepared to offer helpful tips that improves their safety and reduces the likelihood of a dental emergency.
