The Scary Tooth

Did you know that 42% of kids ages 8-13 say they’re worried about getting cavities from eating too much Halloween candy? You may not be able to curb all their fears tonight, but at least prevent the fear of cavities. Even if you've had a late night, take the extra two minutes to brush your teeth!

Those of you without kids aren't off the hook - don't let plaque haunt your mouth! Did you know that the American Dental Association recommends you:
  • Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed.  A worn toothbrush won't do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
  • Make sure to use an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste.
Enjoy the candy, and please have a safe and Happy Halloween!
