It is important to make sure you’re doing everything you can to protect your smile this Halloween season. This includes having effective treatment devices in place to stop any accidents that may arise and start effective oral health treatment plans to keep your smile at its best.
During Halloween, set rules for trick-or-treating and candy consumption in your household. This includes going through all candy you receive for yourself and your family and removing pieces that pose extra hazards for your teeth, such as chewy or sticky candy, hard candy that can chip or crack teeth, and overly sugary or acidic sweets. In addition, you can set up an exchange program to switch out your loved one’s candy with toys, money, or other rewards to keep their smile free of damaging sweets.
Don’t forget to continue optimum oral health care plans such as brushing twice daily and flossing daily to. Furthermore, be sure to clean your mouth out after eating to remove any candy residue that may linger behind. For additional oral health care treatments and procedures, visit your dentist for routine exams and checkups.
