Halloween can be a scary time for your smile, especially if you don’t take good care of your teeth. So, to help you scare away dental issues this Halloween, our Plaza Dental Care team recommends doing the following things:
-Brush your fangs: Brushing is very important, so make sure to brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. The soft bristles will deeply clean your teeth and care for your gums and the fluoride toothpaste will strengthen your teeth, giving them the ability to fight the harmful particles candy leaves behind.
-Floss your chompers: Try to floss between your teeth at least once a day. Flossing will help remove the candy that is stuck in the crevices of your smile, which will help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
-Avoid sticky, hard, and gooey treats: Sticky, hard, and gooey treats tend to stick to the smile for a long period of time. This is harmful because it can threaten your teeth and cause many dental issues. So, it’s best to avoid choosing these types of treats when you visit each house on Halloween night.
-Visit your dental issue-fighting hero, the dentist: Your dental checkup and cleaning is very beneficial. It removes the plaque and tartar from your teeth and it also strengthens your smile, increasing your chances of preventing dental issues that can be caused by Halloween treats. So, if you are due for your six-month checkup, now is a great time to visit your dentist!
