At Harris Dental we understand how hard it is to avoid sweets altogether at parties and other social gatherings. Your dentists in Phoenix encourage both unfettered joy and healthy living for all of our patients.
Here’s how you can minimize your candy intake at parties:
1. Lock yourself in a closet.
2. Sew your mouth shut.
3. Wear a shock collar that’s sensitive to sugar particles.
Then again, there is moderation. Moderation in candy intake can help with the prevention of dental caries, but so can consistent brushing and flossing and regular cleanings and check-ups at your Phoenix family dentist. Keeping the mouth clean and being meticulous are strong indicators for a happy mouth.
We’re not here to tell our Phoenix and Queen Creek patients to avoid sugar altogether. We’re not even here to tell you just to sneak a little. Eat as much as your child will let you, just be sure and brush thoroughly – same as any other time of year. Keep in mind that eating a candy bar and then brushing is better than sucking on a lollipop for a half hour.
