Schedule a routine check-up
Better safe than sorry: you might want to schedule an appointment before Halloween if your child hasn’t had one recently. That should give you some peace of mind, since Halloween may not be your child’s teeth’s best friend. This recommendation also applies to your teeth; no one is immune to oral problems!
Dental hygiene tricks for a cavity-free Halloween
Fluoride toothpaste is a must. It prevents cavities by making teeth more resistant. A small pea-sized amount is sufficient.
It’s also a good idea to visually check your child’s teeth after they’ve brushed them in the evening to make sure they haven’t missed any spots.
The general recommendation is to brush twice a day for two minutes. If your child doesn’t want to brush their teeth, make it a game, and don’t forget to floss! It is important to start flossing as soon as the gaps between the teeth start to close.
The staff at Centre Dentaire Dre Nathalie Kadoch hopes you’ll have a spooktacular Halloween with your family! By keeping your children’s oral health in mind, you can help them avoid many problems. You can trust us for a cavity-free Halloween!
