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!

5 Smile Makeover Questions For Provo Smiles

How Much Does A Smile Makeover Cost In Provo

If you are considering a multi-procedure smile makeover or extensive restorative dental work, here are four considerations:

All At Once Or Over Time?
At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry, our Provo smile makeover patients can often receive several (or all) procedures in one visit. It all depends on the specific procedures necessary to achieve your perfect smile. Dr. Hammond develop a unique treatment plan for each patient after an extensive consultation and examination.

Oral Sedation?
Many Utah County and American Fork cosmetic dental patients benefit from sedation dentistry. Conscious sedation is especially helpful for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.

We know that cosmetic dentistry is a substantial investment for most Orem dental patients. Some procedures are covered by dental plans, so if you have dental insurance, be sure to find out exactly what is covered. Many Provo residents use flex spending accounts for dental work and reap the tax advantages. Call us at 801-374-0070 to discuss dental financing options in Provo.

Healing Time?
With the latest materials and cosmetic dental techniques, healing times are often minimal. However, some treatments such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants often require a short healing period. Consider how the timing of your dental visits and the necessary healing periods will affect your job and family responsibilities.

Aesthetic Results?
At Hammond Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Provo our patients experience terrific results when doing smile transformations in phases; however, porcelain restorations are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.
