Halloween Is the Perfect Time to Teach Your Little One about Brushing and Flossing

October 28, 2011

In about three days from now, the wait will be over—Halloween and all of its thrills will finally be here. That means costumes, of course, but more than that it means piles of candy.

Candy, of course, has a bad a reputation when it comes to teeth. As you’ve been told all your life, candy causes cavities. And it’s true. But while sugar can have a detrimental effect on oral health, where’s the harm in splurging now and then?

That’s why Dr. Michel and the rest of our team at Michel Dental would like to wish everyone a happy, safe, and fun Halloween.

But we’d also like to encourage you to use Monday as a time to reinforce the basics of good oral health. Brushing and flossing are essential to maintaining a healthy smile, and learning how to do each at a young age can go a long ways towards helping your little one develop healthy habits that will last well into adulthood.

Have any questions about how you can help your son or daughter learn to brush and floss? Feel free to give our Topeka office a call today. Dr. Michel and our team would be happy to answer any questions you might have or set up an appointment for you.
