The holiday season is upon us filling the air with delicious spices and sugary aromas all around us. As this holiday approaches, our team here at Riverdale Dental Center in Brighton, Colorado, is ready to help you with tips and tricks when it comes to scaring cavities away from your smile this Halloween season.

As always the best place to start is with your oral hygiene routine at home. That is why we have provided a list of four items that can help your smile this season. Here are four fantastic products to help keep your smile healthy through the holiday 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.

-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.

-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.

If you feel it’s time for you or a member of your family to have a dental check-up, please call us today at 303.659.1920 and set up an appointment. A member of our friendly staff is always happy to help you in any way we can by giving you a healthy smile in time for the holiday season.
