Did you know that there’s more to get excited about throughout October than just trick-or-treating? It’s true! Did you ever think there could be a way to blend being a bit naughty with your plans for your teeth (eating candy) with great attention to caring for them (dental hygiene can help)? Your Riverside dentist is pleased to talk with you about how to make the most of this month by enjoying yourself, while taking advantage of the tips that National Dental Hygiene Month has to offer.

What To Remember All Year

Your Riverside dentist reminds you that while relying on dental hygiene to get you through Halloween is important, it’s not something to be forgotten once your mad dash to indulge in candy is over. Instead, remembering the tips and guidelines you refresh your memory with this month should be something you carry over into the other 11 months of the year. We encourage you to brush up on the facts, including:

  • Remember you need a brush with soft bristles and fluoridated toothpaste (paste or gel is just fine in any flavor).
  • Keep in mind that keeping your hygiene consistent is the best way to see optimal results. This means that you brush your smile two times every day and you floss it once every day.

What To Do On Halloween

Your Riverside dentists suggests you take a tip or two from National Dental Hygiene Month by applying it to your Halloween fun. Remember that keeping water on hand is a good plan because drinking it will help wash away sugar. In addition, pop a pack of sugarless gum into your pocket or bag. When you aren’t able to rinse then brush after you enjoy a treat, chewing sugarless gum is a beneficial way to protect your teeth by removing sugar particles.
