    Dr. Frankel’s Tips for a Fun Halloween

    Costume? Check. Candy? Check. Toothbrush? Check!

    It’s that time of year – millions of children will be enjoying Halloween in their costumes and going door-to-door collecting a few tricks and lots of treats!

    Although some may think Halloween is a dentist’s nightmare, there are still ways to enjoy the holiday and respect your teeth.

    Dr. Frankel’s Tips for fa Fun Halloween.

    1. Enjoy candy in moderation – your child may come home with pounds of candy in their bag. Play a game and tell them to pick out a number of pieces to eat, save and donate.
    2. Try to avoid the sticky, gummy candy which can be dangerous for your teeth and especially any fillings – opt for chocolates and especially dark chocolate!
    3. Drink water after candy is consumed to help wash away the particles.
    4. If you are passing out treats, consider passing out non-sugar treats like pretzels, popcorn or even small toys like stickers and play-doh.
    5. Brush and floss your teeth after consuming candy to help prevent tooth decay.

    Halloween is a time to create memories – help teach your children how to have fun in other ways instead of focusing on all the candy they will be receiving, such as decorating pumpkins, playing tricks and even making their own costume.

    Got a Sweet Tooth?

    Hundreds of pounds of halloween candy is being consumed this season – do you have the will power to eat it in moderation? Before the holiday season is here, make sure to check your healthy habits and understand how all those sweets affect your teeth. It’s also very important to teach children health habits at a young age and educate them on the effects of sugar on their teeth.

    Everything we eat and drink has bacteria in it, but sugary sweets contain more bacteria. This bacteria can buildup and cause plaque. When plaque builds up and is not cared for with a good oral hygiene routine, it can cause tooth decay and cavities.

    Sugar can be enjoyed in moderation and it’s important to brush and floss your teeth after consumption. Make brushing fun and not a chore — share this video with your children and sing together!

    TOLEDO, OHIO – Frankel Dentistry’s 7th Annual Halloween Candy Buyback

    We all know that children may receive money from the tooth fairy, but did you know that children can trade in their Halloween candy for cash? Frankel Dentistry is pleased to be offering their 7th annual Halloween Candy buyback to the Toledo community. Trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Frankel Dentistry’s Talmadge Road and Keystone Drive locations and receive $1.00 per pound.

    Candy, candy everywhere, what’s a parent to do? Halloween is a fun holiday for children to dress up in costumes and participate in trick-or-treating, but sometimes they return with more candy than their own good! Frankel Dentistry wants to remind children that too much sugar can lead to cavities and unhealthy habits. Candy, as well as hurting children’s teeth, can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. “Visiting your Dentist twice a year and brushing daily are preventative measures, but doing away with excess sweets all together will really give your teeth a healthy boost,” says Dr. Frankel.

    Children may bring their leftover, wrapped Halloween candy to Dr. Frankel for $1.00 per pound. Dr. Frankel donates the treats to a local group of Military Parents to be sent to Toledo troops who are serving overseas. Last year, Frankel Dentistry was able to donate over a ton of candy to our troops – let’s try to increase that amount this year!

    Stop by either location on the day after Halloween on Tuesday, November 1st. Candy will be collected at Jon Frankel Dentistry at 5012 Talmadge Road, Toledo, Ohio 43623 from 8:00 a.m. until 7 p.m. and 4359 Keystone Drive, Maumee, Ohio 43537 from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m

    Frankel Dentistry emphasizes general family dental care as well as cosmetic procedures. Dr. Frankel is available to provide more information at 419-474-9611 or on-line at www.jonfrankeldentistry.com.
