Halloween is a fun and exciting time for children, and not one to be marred by tooth decay and pain. There are steps you can take as a parent to keep your child’s teeth healthy and cavity-free during this upcoming Halloween season.
West Village Dental proudly treats children of all ages (and adults, too). Don’t let this Halloween trick your child out of the excitement and fun that is designed just for them. We have created a fun and relaxed atmosphere where our younger patients can feel safe and comfortable.
Pre-Halloween Check Up: When to Schedule?
At West Village Dental Care, we recommend a check up before all the Halloween festivities begin.
At this appointment, we will focus on preventing cavities and damage. Treatment could include checking/applying sealants or flouride treatments; generally we are looking for weaknesses that could cause future damage to young teeth.

Tips for a Healthier Halloween
So, what can you do as a parent to keep your child’s teeth healthy, strong and pain-free during this busy time of year? Here is a list of things you can do:
- Switch to sugar free candy or dark chocolate.
- Eat a filling dinner before going trick-or-treating for the night.
- Try chewing sugar free gum or drinking a glass of milk after dinner.
- Give out non-food treats like: pencils, tattoos, stickers or bubbles.
- Provide healthy snacks.
- Donate uneaten candy. Many places will ship leftover candy to our military men and women, children’s hospital or senior center.
