Halloween means candy, caramel apples, and other sweet treats for children and adults alike. You can help protect your teeth this Halloween by: 1.	Brushing your teeth after every sweet treat or snack 2.	Flossing your teeth both morning and night 3.	Adding an antibacterial or antimicrobial mouthwash to your daily routine 4.	Refraining from biting into hard or particularly chewy sweets 5.	Limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages These five steps can help prevent cavities along with damage to restorations and trauma to the teeth. They can also help set the groundwork for a solid daily oral care routine, helping ensure your teeth stay strong, healthy, and attractive in the years ahead. Halloween marks the first of several holidays at which sweet foods and candy are ubiquitous. As such, the care you take of your teeth leading up to Halloween should be extended to include Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other seasonal holidays that involve treats. And there is no reason to stop there – maintaining a strong daily routine and visiting our Fresno dentist every six months for cleanings and examinations remain the most effective ways of preventing cosmetic and functional issues with your smile. During your next visit, Dr. Miyake can discuss this with you in greater detail and provide personalized guidance to help you optimize your at-home dental routine.
