Halloween is not celebrated by everyone, particularly those that want to maintain good dental health. The trick-or-treat aspect of Halloween makes people over-indulge in sweets and candies, and this can be detrimental to their oral and dental health. If you do not want any part of Halloween, you can easily avoid the candies by making it clear that you are not taking part in trick-or-treating.
Do not buy candy
If you are looking to avoid Halloween candy activities, then you should not buy candy as it would be pointless. Avoiding candy throughout the Halloween period will greatly benefit your oral health. The high sugar content in candy provides food to the bacteria inside your mouth that are linked to cavities. The bacteria feed on the sugar and secrete a weak acid that eats away at the enamel of your teeth. Therefore, avoiding candy during Halloween is a great idea.
