With Halloween comes candy. Lots and lots of candy. And with candy comes increase tooth sensitivity and a higher risk for tooth decay. This makes it very important to discuss proper oral care with your children and to put into practice your own daily routine to help prevent cavities and keep your natural teeth strong and attractive for years to come.

This Halloween, take time to care for your teeth – lest you wind up looking like a jack-o-lantern. Call Fresno dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake at <a href=559-224-0103 to schedule a cleaning today" src="/sites/" style="line-height: 23.8px; width: 300px; height: 123px; margin-left: 5px; margin-right: 5px; float: right;" />

Your daily routine should consist of:

  • Brushing with a soft bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste after every meal
  • Flossing both morning and night
  • Limiting your intake of sugary foods

Around Halloween, when more candy may be consumed than normal, it is a good idea to brush after every snack as well. This helps keep bacteria under control and serves to minimize oral health complications.

In addition to your at-home routine, you should plan on visiting Fresno dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake at least every six months for routine cleanings and examinations. These visits allow Dr. Miyake to inspect your teeth and gums, and provide you with the most effective ways to optimize your daily routine.

If you are overdue for a dental cleaning, please contact Gregory Miyake, DDS today. We serve Clovis, Tulare, Madera, and surrounding areas from our conveniently located Fresno office.
