While it may sometimes seem like developing tooth decay, also known as a cavity, is some rare, awful occurrence, the truth is that this actually happens quite often.

Your East Lansing children’s dentist at the practice of Dr. Jacob Myers DDS would like to take the time to explain why tooth decay occurs and what you can do to prevent it from happening.

Candy During the Holidays
11/28/2017
Parents – we hope that it’s just you reading this as you might not want your children to see this one! Starting with Halloween, it’s getting to be that time of year where candy and other sweets start to dominate the environment. We at the practice of Dr. Jacob Myers like to call it the ‘Candy Holidays.’ Sure, there are other things that the holidays are about, like getting together with family, dressing up in costumes, putting up decorations, and going out to fun events, but for a certain group of people (i.e.: kids!), it’s really just about the sweets. You probably don’t need your DeWitt and East Lansing pediatric dentist to tell you that candy and other sweets can be bad for your teeth, but here goes anyway – “Candy and other sweets can be bad for your teeth.” There. With that being said, it’s important for you to understand that while children can occasionally consume some of these delicious treats, it’s important that some steps are being taken to minimize the candy that they eat during the holidays (seriously…you’re not letting them read this, are you?).
