Last year, we page homage to Halloween by rounding up a couple of tooth-themed ideas to try out in Smile-Friendly Halloween Ideas and this year, we are going to commemorate the occasion by dishing up a few smile-saving tips.
Here we go!
1. Drink Plenty Of Water & Steer Clear Of Uber-Sweet Concoctions
As we have mentioned many times, drinking enough H20 can help prevent cavities since water can flush out havoc-wreaking food residue. Pair this with brushing and flossing every morning and evening (and after indulging in sugary treats!) and you’ll fare just fine, granted that you also avoid sipping on sodas cocktails and the like.
2. Eat A Healthy Meal Before You Head Out To Trick-Or-Treat/Any Halloween Celebrations
Prior to putting yourself in any candy-filled situation, you should sit down and enjoy a good meal that packs a nutritional punch. This will prevent mindless munching and will leave less room for delicacies and desserts. Pretty simple, no?
3. Limit Pre- & Post-Halloween Snacking
Kind of a tall order, but the best way to do this is to toss, give away or donate your Halloween confection collection. Lessen the blow by picking out a handful of your favorites to keep and eat one every few days after dinner.
Happy almost-Halloween, everyone!
