Ask Dr. Baruffi: What's the deal with all that Halloween candy?

For our patients at Southcenter Dental concerned about going overboard on candies, sugar and other sweets this weekend (especially tonight), this post is just for you!

Our entire staff at Southcenter Dental will tell you all those sweet, sour and sticky candies may taste great, but these treats are known to damage teeth! Did you know sour candies can be acidic to your teeth, and actually wear down the enamel that protects them? Candies like Starburst and Skittles are the worst for your teeth since these candies have a low pH value, which is known to ruin enamel.

We encourage you to try and limit the amount of these candies you eat this evening, and when you do eat them, either rinse your mouth with water afterward or drink a glass of milk or eat a slice of cheese.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN and we'll see you soon!
