The Tooth Fairy stops by to tell us what we can do to save our teeth during the candy-filled holidays!
We had a very special guest today for Halloween! The Tooth Fairy (a.k.a. Dr. Christie from Abilene Dental) stopped by to tell us all about the different types of treats you can offer for Halloween. Some of the things that you should avoid are items that say "chewy" or "sour". Chewy candies can stick to your teeth and sour candies are very acidic and can break down your enamel. You also want to try to avoid some hard candies because they can break your teeth. But not all treats can be bad! There are so many different things you can offer like single serving snacks such as popcorn and buts! You can also offer other alternatives to edible treats such as toothbrushes, small toys, necklaces and stickers! Nowadays finding the little gifts and healthier snacks aren't so hard to find anymore! You can find them at party stores and grocery stores!
