There's a lurking danger parents need to know about that involves their kids Halloween candy. Our Lauren Kendrick spoke to a local dentist and brings us that story. Halloween may be over, but now the pounds of candy trick or treaters collected are left in homes to tempt everyone. A local dentist says make sure to give the kids portions instead of leaving it in their sight. "Don't just leave it in their room or leave it on kitchen table where they can always have it, because it's that constant sugar that's bathing the mouth that can give a little bit at a time." Dr. Joanna Ayala says to keep the little ones away from sticky candy. Chocolate is not as bad since it doesn't stick. She also cautions to stay away from hard candy which could break their teeth. That type of candy will cause the most harm to those pearly whites. "Laffy taffy, gummy bears all the chewy candy is what sticks on the teeth so try and get rid of those as soon as possible." Kids love going through their bags of Halloween candy but too much of those treats could land them in the dentist's chair. "You will eventually gradually see the decay appear. it could take a couple weeks to months to years but it does have an effect." In an effort to get rid of some candy, Dr. Ayala is participating in a candy buy back where parents and kids bring in their candy to the office and get one dollar for every pound of candy. "We are donating all the candy to the troops overseas in order to give them something from home."
