TRICK OR TREAT, BUT DON’T CHIP YOUR TEETH

Hard candy can be very tasty, but it can also damage teeth when bitten or chewed. This Halloween, talk to your children about the best ways to eat these candies to help protect their teeth from unnecessary damage. Take care to not bite hard candies yourself as well, lest you chip or crack one of your own teeth.

If you experience Halloween-related dental issues such as increased tooth sensitivity or damage to the enamel this year, call Beaverton family dentist Dr. Michael Negru at 503-848-3606 to schedule an appointment and save your smile.

Chipped and cracked teeth can be dealt with in a number of ways – but ignoring them is never a good idea. Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Negru may recommend:

We are pleased to offer one-hour dental crowns for teeth that have become seriously damaged through trauma or decay. Dr. Negru can help you determine if this service is necessary in your case.

Of course, taking steps to protect your teeth is the best way to avoid dental restorations. As you increase your consumption of sweets, increase also your daily brushing and flossing. And don’t forget biannual visits to our Beaverton office for professional cleanings and thorough examinations to help ensure peak oral health year-round.

To schedule your next appointment with Dr. Negru, please contact Bright Smile Dental Care today. We welcome patients from Aloha, Hillsboro, and all surrounding Oregon communities.
