Smile Safety Tips For The Halloween Season

Halloween is approaching on the calendar, and you can find that stores are already stocking up on seasonal decorations and candy to help with celebrations. Of course, while this holiday can be a fun one for adults and especially kids who love to trick-or-treat, it can be a harder time for our smiles. Your Rochester, MN dentist can help you to make sure that your kids are protected from cavities and other oral health threats throughout the year. During the Halloween season, extra guidance for the kids can be important, and so can more oversight on their hygiene habits. Of course, you should also be mindful of your own routine and the efforts you are making to protect your smile!

What To Expect As Halloween Draws Near

As Halloween approaches, families can take care to purchase and place decorations, select their costumes, and stock up on candy to be delivered to trick-or-treaters. Even before the holiday takes place, we can find ourselves surrounded by more goodies than usual, which can be tough on our teeth. Be mindful of this, and make sure that your kids (and you) are cautious about what you consume, as more sweets means more cavity risks. Be particularly careful about your kids’ access to sticky and hard candies, as these can be particularly harmful to enamel. Take extra care to keep up with your daily hygiene routine, too. If you are past due for a routine dental exam, this can be a smart time to book an appointment.

Check On Your Kids’ Oral Hygiene Efforts

Once they start to effectively brush and floss their teeth without help, you can give your kids more freedom to care for their smiles on their own. However, you should not hand this task over to them completely. Check-ins help ensure they are sticking to good oral hygiene habits. Dropping in can help, and so can taking the time to brush and floss with them so that they can observe the effort you put into caring for your smile.

Make Sure You Protect Your Own Smile During The Halloween Season!

Kids often have a harder time resisting sweets than adults, but people of all ages can have trouble maintaining a truly smile-friendly diet around Halloween! Be mindful of how your own routine is protecting you, and make sure you have your next general dental exam booked so that you can receive feedback and (if necessary) dental work to address any active concerns.
