‘Take care at Halloween’ to avoid emergency dentistry


Avoid emergency dentistry on Halloween.   People intending to join in the festivities of Halloween later this month should take care of their teeth if they want to avoid emergency dentistry.

This is the advice of Dr Gilbert Snow from Los Angeles, who told that some dentists report an increase in activity of between ten and 20 per cent after October 31st each year because so many people damage their teeth.

He pointed out that sweets, bobbing for apples and over-cooked party food can also result in chipped teeth and lost molars.

Dr Snow said both children and adults should take extra care on Halloween when it comes to brushing and flossing, as well as removing sweets that are too hard from trick or treat bags.

In August 2010, Tufts University professor of nutrition and oral health Carole Palmer recommended limiting the total time that sugar spends in your mouth to prevent cavities.

“Remember, of course, that gulping down sugar may not be wonderful for the rest of your body either,” she added.

Regularly brushing ‘helps with overall health’


Britons have been advised to ensure they regularly brush their teeth to maintain better overall health.

According to US dentist Dr Corey Snow, a healthy mouth often signifies a healthy person. He noted up to 400 different types of bacteria can thrive in the mouth. Therefore, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene to stop these bacteria multiplying and making a person sick.

Furthermore, he argued that failing to floss could also lead to problems in the future.

"That’s why when people haven’t flossed for a while, when they do floss there is bleeding, because the gums are inflamed and there is a disease process there," commented Dr Snow.

Elsewhere, research carried out at the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York recently revealed a link between poor oral health and mental decline in older people.

The study claimed that by keeping teeth healthy, people could remain alert and lively for longer.
