Tonight is the night of Halloween Haunts. Little goblins and witches will flock to the streets in search of their sweet treasures. Remember to give your children a flashlight to carry and always accompany them for their safety.
Inspect all candy they bring home before they consume any. However, you decide to divide up their candy consumption remember that hard candies are much worse for their teeth than soft ones.
Whether you let your ghouls and goblins consume all of their candy in one night (oh the tummy ache) or let them have a specified amount each day, please don't forget to have them brush and floss. As a matter of fact, it is a good rule of thumb to have the brush after every consumption period comes to an end.
Sugar in the mouth is the perfect breeding ground for the plaque to flourish. Do everything you can to minimize the sugar infestation by keeping your mouth and the mouths of your children clean and clear from the sweet stuff. Cavities tend to rise during the final months of the year because our sweet consumption increases beginning with Halloween. You can mitigate this by staying vigilant with your oral health care routines.
Keep the water consumption up, healthy food consumption regular and along with brushing and flossing you will give your mouth the help it needs to stay healthy and happy.
As always, should you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to call us!
Happy Haunts tonight!
