Best Candies to Give, Tips for Parents and Buy Back Candy Program for Troops

You don't want to be the house that's known for giving out carrot sticks, but you'd also like to hand out sweet treats that's aren't so bad on kids' teeth. That's where Chandler Dentist J. Philipp's suggestions can help:
The Good Candies
-Sugar free lollipops stimulate saliva production, which flushes away bacteria.
-Chocolate melts quickly and it's best to stick to plain.
-Sugar-free gum helps dislodge food particles and stimulates saliva production, which can prevent tooth   decay.

The Bad Candies
-Sticky, chewy treats like gummy bears, caramel and taffy stick to your teeth. Generally, the stickier the    candy, they worse it is for your teeth.
-Sour candies have high acid levels that break down tooth enamel.
-Hard candies stay in your mouth longer, coating it with sugar.
-Jawbreakers can actually chip your teeth

While getting a bag full of candy is a child's dream, it can be a parent's nightmare. That's why Dr. Philipp offers the following advice:

Set a time to eat candy. Kids need to know that eating sweets isn't a non-stop activity. Moderation is key and when kids know they have a specific 'treat time' they're less likely to think about candy at other times.
Brush and floss after eating sweets and make it fun. Let kids pick out their brushes and pastes just make sure the toothpaste contains fluoride.

Halloween Candy Buy Back Program 

Parents can also have kids choose their favorite pieces and donate the rest. On Monday, November 2, Dr. Philipp will continue his Halloween tradition of paying $2 per pound (up to 5 pounds) for candy. 
The candy will be shipped to American troops as part of Operation Gratitude. Sending candy to troops provides a 'taste of home' and lets them know that children appreciate their service. Parents can bring their children to Dr.Philipp's office in Chandler located at 3230 S. Gilbert Road, Suite 4 from 9 a.m. to5 p.m. to donate.
