The time has come once again to prepare an oral health care checklist to help prevent damage that arises during Halloween. Your teeth will be at an increased risk for dental damage if you’re not willing to care for them properly. Effective Halloween tips to remember include exercising caution with the treats you eat and the oral hygiene habits you keep.
It is important to always avoid substances that can be extremely hazardous to your oral health. During Halloween, avoid the following sweets:
– acidic suites with a low pH level
– sugary snacks
– hard candies or hard treats that can easily chip or crack your teeth
– sticky or chewy sweets that can linger in your mouth long after eating them
As an alternative, opt for healthier options during Halloween. Also, remember to brush and floss daily to prevent plaque buildup. Furthermore, dispose of any extra candy after the holidays and visit your dentist for routine checkups and oral examinations. Every 6 months, visit your dentist for a professional cleaning.
