3 Ways to Minimize Candy Intake at Halloween

Categories: Oral Health

1. Lock yourself in a closet.
2. Sew your mouth shut.
3. Wear a shock collar that’s sensitive to sugar particles.

At Bozeman Dentistry we understand how hard it is to avoid sweets altogether at Halloween and other sugar-filled holidays. We encourage both unfettered joy and healthy living for all of our Belgrade and Big Sky patients.

Moderation in candy intake can help with the prevention of dental caries, but so can consistent brushing and flossing and regular cleanings and check-ups at your Bozeman family dentist. Keeping the mouth clean and being meticulous about oral hygiene are strong indicators for a happy mouth.

We’re not here to tell our Big Sky and Bozeman patients to avoid sugar altogether. We’re not even here to tell you just to sneak a little. Eat as much as your child will let you; just be sure and brush thoroughly – same as any other time of year. Keep in mind that eating a candy bar and then brushing is better than sucking on a lollipop for a half hour.

When it comes to caring for Belgrade, Montana’s teeth and cosmetic dentistry needs, Dr. Gabriel McCormick works tirelessly to make quality general dentistry, teeth whitening, and dental bridges available to this entire Montana community. Services such as dental crowns and dental implants really set us apart from the competition. If we can help you with cosmetic dentistry or full mouth reconstruction, then we’ve done our job!
