Are you caring for your teeth in preparation for the holidays seasons to come? As the Halloween season comes around once more, keep your teeth and gums in great shape by practicing effective oral health care approaches such as brushing and flossing daily. For additional care, visit us at Next Level Dental for routine checkups and professional cleanings. Furthermore, you can help protect your smile this Halloween by managing the sweets and treats that come through your door.

Try not to overindulge in any unhealthy treats this Halloween. Also, try to avoid hard candies such as candy apples, which can chip or crack teeth. In addition, avoid sticky or chewy candies such as taffy and caramels which can speed up the rate of tooth decay.

If you have any children, it is crucial to limit their sugar intake. As an incentive, have them exchange out their candy for toys, money or some other reward. Furthermore, dispose of any extra candy after the Halloween season to prevent snacking on sweets for many weeks to come.

Be sure to care for your teeth this Halloween. To make an appointment with Dr. Coley Ramsey, please contact us at 615-459-6354, or stop by our office in Smyrna, Tennessee. From all of us at Next Level Dental, have a ‘spooktacular’ Halloween!
