3 Ways to Minimize Candy Intake at Halloween

Orem dentist

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

At Hammond Aesthetic & General 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 Provo patients.

Moderation in candy intake can help with the prevention of dental caries (cavities), but so can consistent brushing and flossing and regular cleanings and checkups at your Orem 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 Provo and Utah County 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 Provo, Utah’s teeth and cosmetic dentistry needs, Dr. Hammond work tirelessly to make quality sedation dentistry, porcelain veneers, and mini implants available to this entire Utah community. Services such as dental crowns and Invisalign really set us apart from the competition. If we can help you with cosmetic dentistry or dental implants, then we’ve done our job!
