Halloween is right around the corner, which means scary costumes, spooky decorations, and plenty of candy. Although it’s one night out of the year, you don’t want Halloween to come back to haunt your child’s smile. While tooth decay may not happen overnight, candy weakens the enamel.

Your orthodontist has the must-have list of the best and worst candy.
