Halloween is around the corner and it is time to start shopping for your kid’s costume (as well as yours if you are a kid at heart!) Don’t forget to protect your smile from the sugary sweets that lay ahead. You can enjoy the season without sabotaging your oral health.
To keep cavities at bay from Halloween through the rest of the year, try to do these things daily:
- Sip beverages through a straw
- Brush and floss after every meal (as well as finishing a pile of candy)
- Drink plenty of water
- Brush after and limit snacking
- Use sugar-free gum
Should a cavity emerge despite your best efforts to prevent it, be sure to get it filled before it can turn into a more costly and painful crown or root canal.
Also, don’t forget that most dental insurance benefits expire at the end of this year. Please do not let money spent on insurance premiums go to waste! Our Columbia, SC dental team is here to answer your questions and provide you top-notch service.
