Austin Dentists of Bridgeview Dental Discuss Halloween Candy Consumption and Dental Issues
A recent statistic from the United States Department of Agriculture reported that Americans consume almost 25 pounds of candy per year. As Halloween approaches, the Austin-based dental professionals of Bridgeview dental urge people to consider how the increased presence of sweet foods can impact their health.
The presence of candy in offices, homes, and at social events increases dramatically during the weeks before and after Halloween. Many people indulge in candy during this type of year without regard to how it could affect their dental health.
Candy consumption can put people at risk of developing dental health issues such as:
- Dental decay
- Loosening of sealants or dental devices
These and any other dental issues that may arise due to inflated candy consumption can lead to much more serious dental health complications. The team at Bridgeview Dental is prepared for the post-Halloween health problems and available to help people that are suffering from related issues.
