1. Lock yourself in a closet.
2. Sew your mouth shut.
3. Wear a shock collar that’s sensitive to sugar particles.
At La Costa Dental Excellence we understand how hard it is to avoid sweets altogether at Halloween and other sugar-filled holidays. We encourage both unfettered joy and healthy living for all of our Carlsbad patients.
Moderation in candy intake can help with the prevention of dental caries, but so can consistent brushing and flossing and regular cleanings and check-ups at your family dentist. Keeping the mouth clean and being meticulous are strong indicators for a happy mouth.
We’re not here to tell our Carlsbad and San Marcos CA patients to avoid sugar altogether. We’re not even here to tell you just to sneak a little. Eat as much as your child will let you, just be sure and brush thoroughly – same as any other time of year. Keep in mind that eating a candy bar and then brushing is better than sucking on a lollipop for a half hour.
When it comes to caring for Carlsbad, California’s teeth and cosmetic dentistry needs, Drs. Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth works tirelessly to make quality Invisalign, general dentistry, and porcelain veneers available to this entire California community. Services such as restorative dentistry and implant supported dentures really set us apart from the competition. If we can help you with sedation dentistry or dental implants, then we’ve done our job!
