About 10 years ago, we found out just how sacred the Halloween candy tradition is to some people when our post on alternative treats drove an extreme amount of new traffic to our blog – and a whole lot of spirited (pardon the pun) comments. Many were supportive, but of course there were others that suggested we wanted to ruin Halloween.

Since then, rising concerns about sugar and campaigns such as the Teal Pumpkin Project have made the concept of healthier or non-food treats seem far less weird, let alone potential cause for your house getting egged or TPed.

Still, think “Halloween,” and “candy” is likely one of the first thoughts that comes to mind – which is probably why more than a few people think that what every jack o’lantern needs is a good dental theme. What could be more suited to a sugar saturated holiday?

So without further ado, here are some of our favorites…
 
carved pumpkin saying did you floss
 
carved pumpkin decorated with dental floss and floss picks
 
toothless jack o'lantern with plastic fangs in glass of water
 
pumpkin with realistic teeth carved
 
jack o'lantern dentist and patient
 
smile makover jack o'lanterns before and after
 
jack o'lantern with braces
 
jack o'lantern saying smile
 
Have an amazing jack o’lantern – dentally themed or otherwise – to share? Post it in the comments!
