Premier Plattsburgh Dental Practice Says Holiday Candy Is a Big Problem for Teeth

Dr. William P. Caldon, D.M.D., owner Plattsburgh’s High Peaks Dental, explains how even an “innocent” piece of holiday candy can be detrimental to teeth by prompting the formation of cavity-causing plaque.

Plattsburgh, NY — Dec 30, 2014 — Well-known Plattsburgh dentist Dr. William Caldon published a new article entitled “Why Holiday Candy Is a Serious Cavity Culprit.” In the article, he cautions holiday revelers against indulging in seasonal candies and treats, while also offering several methods for lessening sugar’s damage to teeth.

Says Caldon, “How many times have you found yourself reaching for handful after handful of candy in the midst of the holiday season?  We’re all guilty of a little indulgence come the holiday season, but what seems like an innocent candy cane this month can all too easily turn into a big problem for your teeth come January.”

Dr. Caldon has been a co-owner of High Peaks Dental since 1996 after serving in the United States Air Force for 20 years and retiring as a Colonel. He received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Louisville and his Bachelor’s from Thomas More College. In 2013, USA Today featured Caldon as one of America’s Premier Dentists.
