With the sugary season of Halloween approaching, why not start it off right by providing your family with the products they need to keep their oral health in excellent shape? Here at Preston Family Dentistry in Dallas, Texas, we are happy to provide you with tips this season when it comes to keeping your smile healthy and shining this festive season.

Here are four needed products to help keep your smile healthy through the festive season:

-Toothbrush: It’s usually best to choose a soft-bristled toothbrush. Many people always wonder if a manual toothbrush is better than an electric one, and the truth is it’s all a matter of personal preference. The important thing to remember is to always have a toothbrush for your teeth.

-Toothpaste: There are dozens of different kinds of toothpaste depending on your personal needs. If you have sensitive issues, then there are options. Either way, a cavity-fighting toothpaste is always best when it comes to keeping cavities out of your smile.

-Mouthwash: This clears all remaining bacteria from your teeth, gums, and tongue. They also have powerful abilities to help fight off cavities and polish off your smile leaving a beautiful and fresh smile behind.

-Floss: Flossing is often a missed step in oral hygiene, yet vital to oral health. Floss keeps food particles and sticky sugary substances from latching onto your gums deep within the gum line and between your teeth. Waxed floss is usually easier for people to use than unwaxed floss, however, either kind of floss will help keep your smile healthy.

This holiday, try these products regularly to help fight off cavities and other oral health problems that may occur during this time of year.
