Keep your Kids’ Smiles safe this Halloween
Will all of the sugar kids eat during Halloween ruin their smiles? If you’re concerned, you should schedule a post-Halloween appointment at Hellertown Dental Group and Implants, because dental cleanings and dental exams can help protect your children’s teeth.
It’s Bacteria Behind Cavities And Gum Disease
You know sugar is a problem for your kids’ teeth. That’s probably why you don’t let them eat too much candy or drink regular soda during the year. But why?
Everyone’s mouth has some harmful bacteria in it. These microscopic organisms absolutely love sugar. They grow fast on that stuff. When you eat lots of sugar, you leave behind tiny sugar particles that allow harmful bacteria to spread and cause the following problems:
- Tooth decay (cavities)
- Gum disease
- Tooth infections
That’s why Halloween can be a big problem for your kids’ dental health. All that candy can let bacteria get out of control.
How Dental Cleanings And Dental Exams Help
That’s also why you need to call our Hellertown, PA dental office today. Dr. Hunsicker-Morrissey is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry. This gives her advanced training to identify small problems in teeth and gums before Halloween has a chance to make them worse. Dental exams from a highly trained dentist like our “Dr. Ann” help save your kids’ smiles. As a dentist and a parent, she understands how to help kids survive Halloween with their smiles intact.
Dental cleanings are just as important. Brushing and flossing at home is needed. But only skilled dental hygienists like we have at Hellertown Dental Group can get those teeth professionally clean. Removing plaque and tartar buildup will help keep their teeth and gums healthy this Halloween.
Bacteria can leave plaque and tartar on teeth, so dental cleanings help clean your kids’ smiles. Early detection is very important in dentistry and dental exams from a highly trained team like ours can help you fix problems while they are still small.
