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