Children’s Halloween dream — to get lots of candy — can be their parents’ nightmare. But pediatric dental experts say Halloween can be a time to teach your children good oral health habits for life, without depriving them of Halloween treats (think moderation).Avoid the suckers. The sugar from the suckers remain the longest in the mouth and can increase decay risk.  You should replace toothbrushes every three or four months anyway,

 so make Halloween an occasion for getting your child a new brush.
