Halloween is almost here and we wanted to share a fun costume idea you can create at home – a tooth! This easy DIY video can show you how to create it using just two pillows. Whatever you or your child decide to be for Halloween, make it a healthy day for your child’s teeth as much as possible. Consider these ideas:

  • Donate unwanted candy. Plan in advance to donate candy to various organizations that send it to troops overseas. Treats for Troops is an excellent place to start.
  • Don’t eat candy all day. After Halloween is over, it’s hard not to make the candy an all day indulgence. Instead, reserve it for either during lunch or after dinner so you limit the sugar intake.
  • Rinse with water after. You’ll want to wait at least 30 minutes before you or your child brushes your teeth, so make sure they rinse afterward at least.

Then, make sure to have your family’s dental checkup scheduled! We’ll do a thorough cleaning and make sure scary bacteria isn’t lingering. call Dobry Dental at 586-210-6828 or contact us online for an appointment.
