Trick or Treat Tips For A Healthy Halloween

October brings in cooler weather, fall atmosphere, and most importantly Halloween! We know that this time of year means lots of candy and treats for both you and your children. While eating candy is one of the most important parts of trick or treating, we want to ensure that your children have a fun night while also maintaining a healthy mouth. It is no secret that candy causes harm to the teeth. Candy contains sugar which eats away at the enamel of the tooth and ultimately causes cavities and decay. But, there are ways to prevent this from occurring. That is why, here at Nash Dental Care in Temecula, Dr. Sewell and Dr. Nash have provided our patients with some tips and tricks on how to maintain a healthy smile this month.

The stickier the candy (caramel, taffy, etc), the longer they stay on the teeth causing decay.

Chewing sugar-free gum after meals can help reduce tooth decay

Avoid biting into hard candy- this can break off your tooth!

Try to eat candy with meals and drink water afterward

Don’t brush immediately after eating candy since that can remove the softened tooth enamel. Wait at least 30 minutes

Better options are chocolate bars, chocolate-covered items, small hard candies, and licorice

Our staff hopes that the tricks above are followed by you and your children and cavities do not surface. If you have any other questions on how to protect your teeth this month or would like to make an appointment with either of our highly trained doctors give us a call at 951-699-0700

When you come in for your 6-month appointment here at Nash Dental Care out dentists and staff will go through a thorough exam and cleanings to help prevent this disease. But, there are also things that you can do yourself to prevent gum disease including:

  • Brush thoroughly with a soft-bristled toothbrush both in the morning and at night
