7 Tooth-friendly Halloween Treats

Halloween is around the corner. Have you made all the necessary preparations, such as your costumes, makeup scars, and decorating your place with a carved pumpkin? Great, if you just utter, “Yes.” But aren’t you missing out one most important thing that you’d be surprised to know about – keeping your oral health in view while munching during the Holidays! 

 You may not realize, but a sweet treat (a candy) to your teeth can do all the disasters you have saved yourself in the past. Today, many American dentists hand out candy to their patients with a reminder to brush after they have it. These dentists, when asked, stated that they do this deliberately for health reasons or allergy awareness. You also wouldn’t even know if the oral surgeon near you is following the same practice until you visit him right before the Halloween holiday. A dental visit earlier to Halloween can make you smile broader on the Halloween night-out. Here let’s dig into the fun treats that aren’t big terrors for your teeth.

Here are some tooth-friendly foods that you can nibble on the next Halloween:

1. Snacks: Cheese, Raw Veggies and Nuts

 This year boycott sour, starchy and sugary meals. Keep at hand crudités, cheese cubes and mixed nuts for guests while dinner is being cooked. Do not misinterpret the use of cheese. It’s fabulous for overall teeth as it has strength-building calcium. Casein, on the other hand, is commonly found in milk products, strengthens the foundations of teeth, helping to keep the cavities at bay.

 Let’s review nuts potencies. A nut is a robust combination of calcium and minerals that strengthen and hydrates teeth. Popular types of nuts like hazelnuts, walnuts, peanuts are a bit expensive to crumble upon but think for the long-term. They are powered-packed with plenty of different nutrients that produce extra-saliva and helps your teeth stand-up against stubborn germs.

 Another safe option while bunking down to a Halloween night is to grab a basket filled with raw vegetables. These also effectively wash away bacteria. Or pick up a fresh bunch of celery. That would be enough to help you stay clean between teeth.

 2. Main Course: Green Beans Sautéed in Sesame Oil

Why not set a cure in advance? Dentist practitioners assure that rinsing your teeth with sesame oil in place can prevent plaque formation. In some cases, it even reverses the effects of gingivitis. 

 Prepare The Meal With Natural Formula: Sauté any of the vegetables you find tasty in sesame oil. Top with sesame seeds for added spice.

3. Dessert: Fresh Pear Slices with Honey Yogurt Dip

It’ won’t make much difference to your cravings if you skip a chocolate rich desert for a day. Instead, you can satisfy your taste buds with a more sophisticated seasonal dessert. 

 How To Do It? 

Simply slice a pear with a thin finish. Arrange slices on a platter. Prepare a yummy dip by adding a cup of plain Greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey and sprinkle some freshly ground cinnamon. This recipe neutralizes acid on the teeth surface. 


Calcium and phosphates present in yogurt energize and remineralize teeth. Honey is a natural antibiotic to disinfect the mouth. 

 4. Beverages: Tap Water and Tea

Sodas are exceedingly terrible for your teeth. They encourage premature tooth decay. Whereas plain water contains fluoride, which reverses damage to enamel caused by acids. Well, we’re not enforcing you to give up entirely on your interests. Get a cup of hot green or black tea. Both of these prevents bacteria, thus fighting cavities. What’s the bonus point is it helps you maintain your waistline. 

 With these tooth-savvy Halloween tips, you’re now officially prepared to make it to Halloween in 2019-2020 and beyond. Still, if you’re baffled about keeping your faith in our tips, schedule an emergency appointment with the best oral surgeon in New York near you. Your beautiful smile is not worth any risk.
