Two Reasons to Celebrate this October!

Monday, October 3, 2016

It’s time to say “Boo!” to certain treats that might try to sneak their way into our Halloween baskets this October. But remember, this isn’t just a month to celebrate Halloween. It is also National Orthodontic Health Month! Halloween comes one day a year, but Monarch Dental wants to make sure your healthy smile lasts a lifetime.

It’s important that everyone enjoys this ‘sweet’ holiday in the safest and smartest way possible. There are many ways to care for your teeth or braces while still enjoying some of the delicious candy of this spooky month.

When your kids return from looting the neighborhood, have them consider trading the hard, sticky candies like taffy and caramels for soft, nut free ones like peanut butter cups and peppermint patties. Keep in mind that no amount of soft candy trades will prevent cavities without attentive brushing and flossing.

Another part of National Orthodontic Health Month is promoting the incredible impact of orthodontic care. Braces can fix crowded or crooked teeth and periodontal problems. They can also boost confidence and self-esteem with the resulting beautiful smile.

There are many solutions for dental and orthodontic health, so don’t be afraid. Enjoy your Halloween and Happy National Orthodontic Health Month!
