A Guide to the Best Halloween Treats for Teeth

It’s no secret that sugar can wreak havoc on your teeth, but that’s no reason not to enjoy the holiday festivities that come with the fall season. Here’s a guide to some better treat choices that will sweeten your Halloween fun without hurting your teeth.

Tiny toys are an exciting find.

When choosing what to pass out to trick-or-treaters, consider bags of inexpensive toys such as the piñata and goody bag fillers found in many stores and online. Kids love getting toys to mix things up as they go from house to house, and parents will appreciate one less piece of candy in their buckets.

Glow sticks are practical and fun.

Another fun inedible item that kids love are glow sticks. You can buy big packs of them at a fairly low price, especially online. Not only do kids love them, but they also double as a safety booster by helping make kids more visible to drivers as they trick-or-treat through the streets on Halloween night.

Water bottles help the whole family stay hydrated.

Trick-or-treating can be hard work! Passing out water bottles will be greatly appreciated by parents and even some kids who often find themselves thirstier than they realize.

Temporary tattoos and stickers are popular.

Whether they are holiday-themed or go along with the latest trend in characters and collectibles, kids love tattoos and stickers!

Lunchbox snacks can still be sweet. 

Individual packs of pretzels, dried fruit, trail mix and more can make great snacks that offer a level of sweetness without tons of added sugar.

When it comes to candy itself, Dr. Buck recommends ditching the super sticky varieties and hard candy. These can be the most challenging for teeth as they linger, doing damage long after the treat is gone. If you have any questions or want to schedule an appointment, call our office at 206-316-8286.

DR. BUCK'S PHILOSOPHY

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.

WOW! A 54% decrease in forward head posture; 164% increase in the antero-posterior size of the airway; 176% increase in the lateral size of the airway all from epigenetically centered jaw development orthopedics. This is the future of orthodontics!​
