The Dentists at NY's Preferred Dental Care Chelsea Share Tips For Preventing Halloween Cavities, Manhattan, New York

Gooey Halloween candy may taste great, but it’s not so good for your teeth. Too much sugar can lead to tooth decay and an unplanned trip to the dentist. The staff at  Preferred Dental Care Chelsea knows it’s hard to resist temptation during the Halloween season. That’s why they’ve compiled a few tips that will help you prevent cavities if you do indulge in a few sugary treats. They’ve provided quality general dentistry services to Manhattan and Midtown residents for 20 years and offer teeth whitening, veneers, and dental implants.

The dentists have a few tips to help keep your teeth healthy this holiday:

  • Brush & Floss After You Indulge: Encourage your children to do the same! Brushing and flossing helps remove sugar and candy particles from your teeth; follow up with an antiseptic mouthwash to help remove plaque. In addition to brushing and flossing, visit Preferred Dental Care Chelsea every six months for a cleaning and complete dental checkup.
  • Drink Plenty of Water: Water helps wash away sugar and bits of stray candy. It’s particularly important to follow a handful of sour candy with a glass of water. Sour candy is so acidic that it can damage the enamel of your teeth very quickly if it lingers in your mouth.
  • Limit Sticky Candy: Avoid caramels, taffy, gummy treats, and other sticky candies if you can. Since bits of the candy tend to stick to and between teeth, this type of candy is a chief culprit in causing cavities.
  • Avoid Hard Candy: It takes a long time to finish a piece of hard candy or a lollipop. The longer sugar remains in your mouth, the more likely you may get a cavity. 

Following good oral hygiene practices and making smart choices on Halloween can help you avoid cavities that can damage your teeth. When it’s time for your next dental exam, call Preferred Dental Care Chelsea at (212) 594-7171. Take a look at their website or Facebook page for information about their services.
