Why You Should Definitely Treat That Cavity Before Halloween!

Does your child have a cavity? Do you keep meaning to call us up to schedule your child’s beautiful white dental filling but you manage to forget about it or put it off because you have so many other things to do? While our Dallas, TX team can absolutely comprehend of a very busy schedule, and we know that you know how important addressing decay is, we do have one time-sensitive suggestion for you to keep in mind: Treat that cavity before Halloween! Wondering why we suggest this? Let’s discuss.

It Will Make Candy Eating Uncomfortable

If you found out during your child’s recent checkup that there’s a cavity requiring a dental filling, one of the reasons we encourage you to get busy scheduling that before October 31st is because we want your child to actually enjoy Halloween. As you likely already know, when you have a cavity and you bite into sugar, it can be extremely uncomfortable! Protect your child’s oral health and experiences by setting up the restoration before the big day arrives.

It Might Result In A Not-So-Fun Trick-Or-Treating Experience

What you really want on Halloween night is to see your kiddo in an adorable costume with a beaming smile. However, there’s the chance that your child will end up with a toothache by Halloween, which might make for an unhappy camper and a less than enjoyable evening. Don’t let this happen! We recommend that you treat that cavity instead.

It Can Leave Your Kiddo Vulnerable To Other Problems

Is it possible for your child’s tooth decay to give way to bacteria that enter your child’s tooth, resulting in an infection and a very uncomfortable tooth just in time for Halloween night? Of course. It’s also quite possible for your child to bite into a piece of candy with just the right amount of pressure that leads to a broken tooth if the cavity is big enough. Of course, when you consider these potential consequences, the idea of finding time to bring your child in for a dental filling well before Halloween shows up starts to sound better and better. See us soon! It is worth the schedule-shuffling.
