While Halloween this year will look different for everyone, it is important to know which Halloween treats are best for your teeth. Whether you're going trick-or-treating or decide to stay in and celebrate together, there are sure to be some Halloween goodies—and the sugar in those treats can play some unwanted tricks on your teeth if you’re not careful. Chocolate is one of the better candies for your teeth because it washes off teeth easily. You might want to pass on things that make you pucker – especially if they are sticky and coated in sugar. Sour candy is acidic, and it could weaken and damage the outer shell of your teeth.
