Yes, we know that before you had kids, you could just roll with Halloween night, as you took everything moment by moment! Head to a party? Leave for another? Stay out until 1am? No problem. However, you probably know very well by now that as a parent, a footloose and fancy free approach to things (particularly those that can interfere with usual sleep schedules and that include tons of sugar) aren’t always going to give you the relaxing results and happy faces you’re looking to achieve. So, our Dallas, TX team offers you some suggestions for planning your upcoming holiday that will ensure the easy oral health protection that’s been weighing on your mind!
Make Personal Choices About Candy
We remind you to decide ahead of time about which candies you feel comfortable with, which you don’t, how much candy you’re okay with your child consuming, and more. When you do so, you avoid feeling a bit frantic in the moment, and potentially making a decision you don’t love (or realizing you didn’t consider how to explain it, etc.). Plan it out before trick or treating for an easy evening that helps keep your kids’ oral health on track.
Ask Us For Help With Candy Decisions!
Not really sure about what you should be doing or insisting upon in terms of candy? Our team is more than happy to offer you some advice and guidance, so you can feel more certain that you’re making sugar-related decisions that will help keep your kiddos’ oral health out of harm’s way!
Make Sure Your Child’s Smile Is Ready
Don’t forget that it’s always a good idea to see us ahead of a big holiday like Halloween, if you aren’t really sure how your child’s oral health is doing. If there are any issues present, such as a cavity, then we can fix it up and help to ensure your child’s smile is ready for parties, festivities, and more!
Create A Detailed Schedule!
We know a scheduled evening doesn’t necessarily sound as fun as spontaneous one! However, when it comes to ensuring kids have teeth brushed and flossed after enjoying candy, that they’re in bed, and everyone falls asleep with smiles on their faces, well … schedules make things easier. Come up with a general idea of how you’d like your night to unfold, so oral health remains a priority and bedtime is easy to maintain!
