Truedent Family Dentistry Offers Tips for a Healthy, Cavity-Free Halloween
Truedent Family Dentistry shares some tips for enjoying a healthy Halloween — and for keeping tooth decay at bay.
MIAMI, October 31, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Halloween is here — and pretty soon, kids all over the country will be raking in big hauls of delicious candy. Trick-or-treating can be a lot of fun, yet it’s not without some potential drawbacks. Without the proper attention to oral hygiene, those big candy hauls can result in cavities and tooth decay. Truedent Family Dentistry offers some tips for enjoying the season without contracting any dental health issues.
“We want kids to have a great Halloween and to enjoy their candy without developing any cavities or tooth decay,” Truedent Family Dentistry notes. “We have just a few tips to keep in mind as you seek to make your family’s Halloween fun, festive and cavity-free.”
The first tip is to know which types of candy are the most dangerous. “Chocolates are your best option, as they can be brushed away quite easily,” Truedent Family Dentistry says. “Of course, sugar-free candy is also a good choice. On the flipside, sticky and gummy candies tend to be the toughest on teeth.”
Kids shouldn’t hesitate to enjoy their treats — just as long as they brush and floss afterward. “Make sure you clean your teeth as soon as possible after consuming candy,” the dental practice advises. “The reason for this is that the longer candy residue lingers on the teeth, the greater risk there is of tooth decay.” Indeed, sugars that are left on the teeth metabolize and turn to acid, which is what leads to tooth decay. Prompt and vigorous brushing can minimize this risk.
Finally, Truedent Family Dentistry advises regular cleanings and exams. “We generally recommend scheduled cleanings and dental check-ups a couple of times a year — and if you or your kids haven’t been in for an appointment recently, now is as good a time as any to give us a call and get it on the books,” the practice says.
Truedent Family Dentistry is based in Miami, Florida, and provides a full spectrum of oral health services to patients of all ages. Additional information about the practice can be found online at www.truedentfamilydentistry.com.
