As ghosts and goblins begin to come out for Halloween, bringing bags or buckets of candy and sugar in their wake, it’s more important than ever to keep your teeth and gums healthy. That is why our team here at Robert Eversole, DDS, PC in Greensburg, Indiana, encourages you to keep these items stocked and used regularly to ward off any unwelcome tooth-decay visitors lurking in your smile.

The most important products to help keep your smile healthy through the festive season include:

-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. Either way, a cavity-fighting toothpaste is always best when it comes to keeping cavities out of your smile.

-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.

-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.
