3 Ways To Minimize 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.

At Jeff Gray DDS – Sedation & Cosmetic Dentistry, we understand how hard it is to avoid sweets altogether at Halloween and other sugar-filled holidays. We encourage both unfettered joy and healthy living for all of our La Mesa patients.

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 San Diego family dentist. Keeping the mouth clean and being meticulous are strong indicators for a happy mouth.

We’re not here to tell our La Mesa and Alpine 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.

When it comes to caring for La Mesa, California’s teeth and cosmetic dentistry needs, Dr. Jeff Gray works tirelessly to make quality Invisalign, dentures, and teeth whitening available to this entire California community. Services such as laser dentistry and porcelain veneers really set us apart from the competition. If we can help you with cosmetic dentistry or dental implants, then we’ve done our job!
