Halloween is just around the corner, which means a lot of candies are coming into your pockets very soon. But this year, we also have to be cautious of Covid-19 and consider the necessary precautions when going out to have fun trick or treating with friends. Fun is definitely on the table, but the proper SOPs must be observed while maintaining social distancing. 

Ready Your Teeth for the Sweet

Let’s not forget the danger all the candy and sweets pose to your teeth and their health. These sugary treats can wreak havoc on dental health, so make sure to brush your teeth after all the candy consumption. As much as you can, try to avoid the hard, chewy, and extra sticky candies since they can damage your dental plaque. 

Chocolate Gets the Green Light

Amongst all the candies and sweets you can get, chocolate is the best choice if you are going on a candy-eating marathon since it isn’t hard or sticky and doesn’t stress the chompers as much as other candies. It is also much easier to clean off chocolate from your teeth unless there are caramel fillings inside! 

Halloween doesn’t necessarily have to be a nightmare for your teeth and dental health. There are ways to make it more tooth-friendly. Like drinking a lot of water so that their saliva never runs dry despite them eating candies all night long. Parents can also give them some sugar-free gum since they won’t be brushing any time soon. People who maintain a healthy diet year long will also have strong teeth and gums that can easily fight against the problems candy-eating brings. 

Halloween Fun with the Family

All parents are always looking out for their kids and want to protect them in every way they can. To protect the cute smile of your children, you should limit the number of candies they are allowed to eat throughout the month of Halloween so that they don’t end up severely damaging their dental health overnight. And once they are done eating them, make sure they brush their teeth properly before heading to bed. Eating sweets and candies after the family is also an excellent way to protect your children from any dental damage. Whichever method you decide to implement, make sure your children brush their teeth well before heading to bed to maintain their oral health. 

Ensure Safe Smiles After Halloween

Dental Tips for Halloween

Here are a few ideas you can use to have a blast and enjoy Halloween to the fullest:

  • Buy fun costumes and take lots of pictures to share with your family members and on social media.
  • To respect the SOPs and maintain social distancing, you can connect with your families using video calls and have fun, friendly competitions.
  • Host a Zoom Halloween party and invite all your friends to it to have some fun together.
  • Make sure to buy your children’s favorite Halloween candies, plastic decorations, and pumpkins to make their Halloween in Covid more special.
  • Use social media to interact with your neighbors and friends and keep them updated about what you are going to do next.
  • No Halloween is complete without some scary and exciting pumpkin heads carved by your own hands. Make sure to put out plenty of pumpkins on the front lawn to get on the Halloween vibes.
  • You can take your family to drive through Halloween haunt and shop for the scariest and spooky Halloween lights and other decorations.
  • Don’t forget to have a scavenger hunt using a glow-in-the-dark skull that has been filled with the treasure of tasty candies and sweets!
  • You can also decorate a real or plastic tree with Halloween decorations and yummy candy. Make sure to put lights on it as well to truly capture a spooky effect.
  • And of course, Halloween can’t be enjoyed without going out at night, but this time, go with your children and ensure they observe the SOPs while showing off their costumes to others.
  • You can’t have Christmas without some Christmas-themed movies, and similarly, you can’t have Halloween without some spooky movies. Be sure to choose some fun, exciting, scary, and spooky movies for the family to watch and celebrate Halloween together.
  • Halloween might be all about spreading scares and spooks, but don’t forget to share the Halloween spirit with others by handing out Halloween goody bags to your neighbors, friends, and families by leaving them in front of their door.

General and Family Dentistry services are what you and your children need after eating all those sweets and candies on Halloween. No doubt it is a time for fun with family, friends, and everyone else in town, but keep in mind to consume a healthy amount of candy and sweets in one night, and before going to bed, be sure to brush your teeth correctly so that your dental health isn’t damaged in any way.
