1. Lock yourself in a closet.
2. Sew your mouth shut.
3. Wear a shock collar that’s sensitive to sugar particles.
At Stephen Ratcliff Family & 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 Arlington 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 Grand Prairie family dentist. Keeping the mouth clean and being meticulous are strong indicators for a happy mouth.
We’re not here to tell our 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 Arlington, Texas’s teeth and cosmetic dentistry needs, Dr. Stephen Ratcliff works tirelessly to make quality dental implants, teeth whitening, and porcelain veneers available to this entire Texas community. Services such as Invisalign clear braces and dentures really set us apart from the competition. If we can help you with family dentistry or cosmetic dentistry, then we’ve done our job!
