Magic is in the air. With it, comes the promise of sugary treats and fantastic feasts! This brings an interesting questions, are you prepared? Halloween means sugars and candy that put your smile at risk for tooth decay. Here at Express Dental Care in Lynnwood, Washington, we want to remind you of the importance of dental check-ups, and how they can help you spook cavities away this year.

Dental cleanings are vital to your oral health. One of the reasons they are so important is because dentists can remove stubborn plaque and tartar from your teeth. Plaque and tartar cause harmful bacteria, and when left untreated you could suffer from cavities and gum disease, which could lead to tooth loss and other serious oral health problems.

Another reason to regularly visit your dentist is for a check for oral cancer. In each dental screening, your dentist will be checking for other potential threats to your oral health, and cancer could be a serious threat. This is also a great chance to catch cavities and have them repaired before the cavities becomes too big resulting in the loss of a tooth.
