Of all of the long list of expectations you have about the holiday season, some good, some bad, one of the important details we would love for you to consider (but that you probably overlook)? The fact that this time of year, the chance of dealing with damage or even the loss of your teeth becomes much more likely. Why, you ask our Corona, CA team? Well, because there are tons of variables that show up that you might not have time to consider before it’s too late. To help you with this potentially not-so-wonderful fate, your Corona dentist is here to tell you just what to do, so you can keep your teeth!

On Halloween: Maintain An Open Field Of Vision

One of the last things you’ve probably considered for your Halloween fun time is the fact that some very simple missteps can lead to tooth loss! When we say missteps, we mean it literally! Your Corona dentist reminds you that during this holiday, it’s easy to end up with an obstructed field of vision. You might forego your usual glasses for your costume, you may wear a mask, you might go out to trick or treat in the dark. Whatever the scenario, make choices that work for your ability to see clearly (wear your contacts instead, only wear your mask when you’re not in motion, bring a lantern). You get the idea!

During Parties: Ask, “What’s In This?”

Pastries! Olives! Candies! When you attend a holiday party, Halloween included, you can certainly expect an exciting feast. However, do you know what’s in the spread that you’re eyeing in anticipation? If the answer is no, before you indulge, ask questions like, “Hey, what’s in this?” Your Corona dentist reminds you that this can clue you into hidden nuts, seeds, and more that might break a tooth if you remain unaware of them!

When Traveling: Make Lists!

Traveling during the holiday season? Write up a list, so you remember your dental hygiene items, your bruxism treatment, and anything else that helps protect your teeth, so you’re not promoting damage and tooth loss well into the future.
