Best and Worst Halloween Candy Options for Children’s Teeth

Halloween is just around the corner, and although candy consumption is almost unavoidable this time of year, the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) wants parents and children to know that there are both good and bad candy options, both of which may find their way into children's trick-or-treat bags this fall. 
  
"Of course, dentists do not advocate that children eat large amounts of sugary treats, but it is that time of year, so we want to clarify for parents which treats are better for their kids' teeth and which ones may increase the risk of developing cavities," says AGD spokesperson Cynthia Sherwood, DDS, FAGD.

Dental Bone Grafting

Bone Loss Prevention

Let's say you need to have a tooth extracted as it just can't be saved because decay has "taken it over." Normally, a great solution to this is a dental implant. However, some patients may not have enough strong bone in the jaw to support an implant. This presents a problem. After a tooth has been extracted, the bone loss starts almost immediately, which will make placing a future implant difficult or impossible. Should you need a tooth extracted in our practice, we can fill the extraction site with a bone graft to help preserve the strong bone. If you decide not to have an implant, grafting can still aid in significantly reducing bone loss.

When Should My Child First See a Dentist?

Your child's first visit to the dentist should happen before his or her first birthday. The general rule is six months after eruption of the first tooth. Taking your child to the dentist at a young age is the best way to prevent problems such as tooth decay, and can help parents learn how to clean their child's teeth and identify his or her fluoride needs. After all, decay can occur as soon as teeth appear. Bringing your child to the dentist early often leads to a lifetime of good oral care habits and acclimates your child to the dental office, thereby reducing anxiety and fear, which will make for plenty of stress-free visits in the future.
