One of the reasons we tend to see more dental emergencies this time of year is because people are celebrating a bit more for seasonal and holiday parties.
Not that holidays and parties are high-risk for your teeth, but we tend to be less focused on safety because we’re having fun, eating foods and candy we don’t usually eat, playing games that are a little more rambunctious and physical, and the list goes on.
Your family’s night of trick-or-treating can take a stressful turn if one of the kids trips over their costume, falls down on the sidewalk in all the excitement, or bites down on a hard piece of candy that results in a cracked tooth.
