Happy Halloween from your dentist in Fort Lauderdale

While our calendar is full of holidays celebrated with candy - Valentine's Day, Easter, and Christmas - it is ironic that Halloween falls during National Dental Hygiene Month, a time set aside to spread awareness about the importance of oral health.  You have likely grown up hearing the importance of brushing for two minutes twice daily along with daily flossing and regular visits to your dentist and dental hygienist. Current research indicates that your oral health is an important component of your overall health, your well being and your quality of life. According to the World Health Organization, "There is a proven relationship between oral and general health. It is reported, for example, that diabetes is linked with the development and progression of periodontitis. Moreover, there is a causal link between high consumption of sugars and diabetes, obesity and dental caries." 

Your dentist in Fort Lauderdale wants you to enjoy Halloween safely and healthily.  While you dive into your Halloween stash, indulge responsibly to keep your teeth healthy.  Dr. Rotroff, Dr. Wasselle and the staff at Excellence in Dentistry have some advice to help you have a healthy and safe Halloween. As always, we are here for any dental emergency as well. 

What candies are harmful for my teeth?

What candies should I choose?

On Halloween night we are likely to indulge in some candy either as we go door to door or sneak candy as we wait for the doorbell.  According to the National Retail Federation, the average household spend over $30.00 on candy for this holiday alone. While that is good news for the candy companies, it is not necessarily good news for your teeth. Be a savvy consumer and purchase your Halloween treats with your oral health in mind. Be sure to keep your oral health at its best by scheduling your dental checkup and professional dental cleaning with Excellence in Dentistry.
