Dental Cleaning for Post-Halloween Candy Eating

Last night was Halloween. How much candy did you eat? Come on. Be honest. Regardless, there is probably plenty left over for the rest of November. Now is the time to use your dental insurance and come get a dental cleaning.

All that chocolate, peanut butter, nougat, and simple sugars can take a toll on teeth and gums. This is especially true if you have teeth that are susceptible to dental caries.

Our dental hygienists take the time to clean your teeth and remove plaque buildup. This plaque buildup can cause cavities and gum disease. Increasing the amount of simple sugars without properly cleaning them out can detrimentally affect your teeth. Our dental hygienists and dentists will also inform you of what to look for or do to fight against further oral problems.


Before the year ends, schedule a pediatric dental appointment for your little monsters. Get their teeth prepared for the upcoming holiday of Thanksgiving. Your kids need strong teeth and healthy gums and the best way to ensure they do is by bringing them or dental office.

Parents and adults should conduct a post-Halloween dental cleaning as well. As we get older, our teeth become more susceptible to cavities, especially if we aren’t vigilant about keeping our teeth clean. A dental cleaning will ensure your teeth aren’t hiding any cavities or potential oral issues that will get worse over time.


If you have noticed you or your child have a dental cavity, then now is the perfect time to come to our dental office. Removing a cavity with a dental filling is the surest way to protect your teeth from further harm.

Contact our dental clinic today and schedule your appointment. We look forward to taking care of you and your family’s teeth.
