As the Halloween season rolls onto your doorstep, keep your teeth safe by practicing effective oral health care techniques such as brushing and flossing daily. For additional care, visit us at San Tomas Signature Smiles for regular checkups and professional cleanings. You can help protect your smile this Halloween by managing the sweets and treats that come through your door.

Try not to overindulge in any unhealthy treats this Halloween. In addition, avoid hard candies such as candy apples, which can chip or crack teeth. Furthermore, avoid sticky or chewy candies such as taffy and caramels which can speed up the rate of tooth decay.

If you have any children, it is important to limit their sugar intake. As an incentive, have them swap out their candy in exchange for toys, money, or some other reward. Furthermore, dispose of any extra candy after the Halloween season to prevent snacking on sweets for many weeks to follow.

We wish you all a safe and happy Halloween! To book an appointment with Dr. Ramin Moradi, please call us at 408-378-2890 , or stop by our office in Campbell, California. With our help and a steady candy plan to follow this Halloween, we can make sure your smile will shine for many years to come. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
