Are your teeth ready for Halloween?
Below, Dr. Kalp Juthani, one of our High Point dentists, is interviewed with Fox8 News and gives us a dental care crash course in preparation for Halloween! Take a look at the interview below and some of the many tips and tricks to good oral health care during the month of October.
4 Tips for Healthy Teeth this Halloween:
- Oral Health is linked to systemic health so always pay attention to any issues in the mouth
- Dentist visits are recommended every 6 months
- Brush at least 2 times per day
- Floss at least once per day to get between your teeth
When it comes to gum and tooth sensitivity, this can be caused by cavities, grinding teeth, loose fillings, gum disease, infections, smoking, diabetes, stress, or hormonal changes. The best way to avoid these is to adhere to the 4 dental care tips mentioned above or speak to your dental provider for more insight.
To avoid bad breath and keep your breath fresh, Dr. Juthani also recommends brushing twice daily, using a tongue scraper, using antimicrobial mouthwash, choosing gum and mints with Xylitol not Sucrose, and staying well-hydrated.
