Dentists love Halloween as much as the next person, but the holiday can pose a sticky situation for your teeth. However, there are ways to enjoy all those tasty treats without destroying your pearly whites.

We tapped a top dentist for his squeaky-clean tips:

  • This may sound counterintuitive. But let kids eat as much of their candy as they want tonight. It's easier on the teeth than eating treats in 20 to 30 minute intervals, day after day.
  • Share the wealth. Chances are your kids are going to bring home way more candy than they need. Consider taking some to co-workers, or finding a local dental office that is offering a candy buy-back program.
  • Make sure to brush and floss. As always, after the candy binge, make sure your kids properly brush and floss to get rid of all of that sugar and residue.
  • Take control after Trick-or-Treat night. Dispense treats after Halloween in one-time sittings so that your kids are binging on sugary treats all day and night.
