Candy isn’t good for your or your child’s teeth, but there is a spectrum of which types of candy can do the most damage. Although sugar-free gum is typically the best bet1, it’s unlikely your kids will get much of that in their candy pails this Halloween.
Kids love to run, jump and roughhouse — and sometimes all that play can lead to a knocked-out tooth. More than five million teeth1 are knocked out every year, by both children and adults.
Whether your child knocks out a baby tooth or a permanent tooth, a knocked-out tooth can lead to poor oral health if you don’t consult your dentist immediately.
Healthy lunches and snacks are an important cornerstone of your child’s schedule. They need fuel to keep them focused and energized from class to band practice to the big game — which is where your role as a parent comes in.
