Happy Halloween from our spooktacular team at Moore Family Dental. We hope your Halloween season is wonderful and you take the time to make sure your teeth are safe and sound throughout the holiday. If you need additional help with the oral health care, visit us for an oral exam or professional cleaning.

As Halloween approaches, begin making your oral health care plan. This includes making a checklist of all priorities you have for the holiday, including what to do with extra treats, and how to handle what not to eat. If you have any extra treats lying around after the holidays, dispose of them so you do not continue to consume them for weeks on end. Furthermore, you can offer your child an incentive program to exchange their candy in return for money or toys.

Exercise caution with hazardous products that can damage your teeth. This includes sugary sweets, hard candies that can crack your teeth, and overly acidic sweets such as fruit drinks and sour candy. If you are not careful, you may find yourself spooked by a cavity or oral injury this Halloween season.

If you have any additional questions about caring for your teeth this Halloween or to book an appointment with Dr. Aaron Moore, please contact us at 304-699-0359, or stop by our office in Parkersburg, West Virginia. From all of us, have a ‘fangtastic’ Halloween!
