Halloween Candy And Your Dental Health

Is your oral hygiene routine capable of protecting you at all times of the year? During and shortly after Halloween, families can find that they have access to far more candy than normal, which can lead to problems with cavities. A routine that protects you at other times of the year will be less effective when you are exposing your enamel to more harm in the form of sugary treats. Make sure you have good brushing and flossing habits in place, and make sure that you also take care to limit your consumption of sweets. When you have questions about your smile care efforts, or when it is just time for you to come in for your next oral health exam, our Dallas, TX dentist’s office is here to support you. We can provide important feedback, and when necessary we can even provide treatments that address active oral health issues. (more…)
