Hopefully, you’ve got a handle on how to guide your children this year when it comes to Halloween candy and celebrations. However, do you feel that you know how to keep your smile safe? The good news is that it’s absolutely possible! The not-quite-as-wonderful news is that this is a time of year that can quickly send a patient to us for 24 hour emergency services. Not interested in having this experience? Well then! Take some of our suggestions regarding enjoying a smile-friendly Halloween to heart.

Get That Filling Right Now

Do you already need a dental filling? If so, contact us today to get it taken care of. What you don’t want to do is wait a long time, eat a bunch of candy on Halloween, and then end up with a very bad toothache. Care for problems before Halloween (whether it’s a cavity or otherwise), so you don’t call us for our 24 hour emergency services, when you should be having fun.

If It’s A Bad Idea, Avoid It!

If you know that you’re staring at a Halloween treat that poses a threat to your oral health, just avoid it. Have you broken a tooth on corn nuts before? Have you dislodged your braces with sticky candy? If you aren’t interested in seeing us for 24 hour emergency services when you could be celebrating, then just make smart choices.

Candy: Sit This Year Out

Maybe you are waiting on your appointment for restorative care but your visit is scheduled for the days following Halloween. We know it doesn’t sound very fun but you might want to sit out the candy this year. After all, it’s just one year, you can indulge once your smile is all fixed up, and you can avoid calling us for an emergency visit!
