Hello There! We’re pleased to share our October newsletter. We hope you are all keeping well. In this months newsletter, with Halloween approaching, we share a little advice about making sensible choices. We also share some information about our fantastic solution to a whiter smile. Additionally we’ve also included our usual updates, question of the month and team news!. 
Halloween and your oral health….
Smile (not too) scarily this Halloween! 
Halloween traces its origins from the early Celtic festival, Samhain. This event heralded the end of summer and the harvest season and welcomed the beginning of winter. On Samhain, it was believed that the veil between the living and the dead became thinner, allowing spirits to visit the living.
The celebratory customs would include ritual bonfires, ‘mumming’ (folk plays) and ‘guising’ (essentially, fancy dress). Many of us now tend to still embrace the ‘spookier’ side of the holiday, watching scary movies and going trick-or-treating. And, of course, gorging ourselves on sweet treats!
What can you do? 
 It’s especially important for adults and children alike to look after their oral health this Halloween. You don’t have to forgo sweets and chocolate entirely, but there are a few things you can do to avoid potential oral health issues.
Tip 1: Choose your poison wisely
 Nowadays, the options for sweet treats are endless.
If possible, try to only eat sweets that are the lesser evil. For example, hard sweets, like lollies or those that are hard-boiled, can be tough on teeth. The same can be said for sticky treats, like caramel and gummies.
Plain chocolate doesn’t stick quite as stubbornly to the teeth and between the gums, so try replacing sweets with chocolate if you can. Or opt for more reduced-sugar or sugar-free options!
Tip 2: Time it right 
 How many of you are guilty of snacking on sweets throughout the day? At work/school, colleagues/students may share sweet treats around to get into the spooky spirit.
Your teeth will really feel the impact of so much sugar spread out over the day. Instead, you could try to limit when you and/or your family snack. For instance, keep it to after a meal. According to the British Dental Association, this is the ideal time to treat yourself, as there will be more saliva produced to wash away sugar and debris from your mouth.
Tip 3: Don’t skip the toothbrush
It’s vital to always maintain a good oral hygiene routine. This is especially so during Halloween.
Bear in mind, however, that when you have devoured your sweets after mealtimes, don’t brush your teeth straight away. Sugary treats are often highly acidic, which can actually soften your tooth’s enamel – brushing may cause further damage.
So, wait at least 30 minutes before brushing – and don’t forget to brush for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste and clean interdentally once a day!
Tip 4: Enjoy yourself
Be mindful this Halloween, but make sure you enjoy yourself, too!
Don’t ban sweet treats – simply be sensible when it comes to when you eat them and keeping your mouth clean.

Team Update….
Happy Birthday Katie!!
We want to wish our lovely receptionist Katie, the happiest of Birthdays! This month she celebrates her birthday and we hope you join us in wishing her a happy Birthday! 
Feel free to follow us on social media for more team news.
We Are Listening….
We want you to know that we take any kind of feedback seriously here at Moonlight Dental Surgery. Each month we take a look at all our patient reviews and feedback, we analyse the results and determine any outstanding trends or concerns that need attention.

In the past month we have continued to receive repetitive feedback about cancellation of appointments. We want to assure you that we do everything in our power to prevent cancelling patient appointments. The only times we will cancel an appointment is if there is insufficient staff or if there is an equipment failure that could cause a health and safety risk. We really don’t like having to cancel appointments and cause inconvenience to our patients.

We thank you for your patience and continued understanding. 
Question of The Month….
Each month we publish a question that one of our patients has asked. 
This month’s question was:Q: Are there going to be any more dentists joining your practice to work?A: Yes! The national recruitment crisis has caused a longer delay than usual, but we are happy to announce that a new full time NHS dentist is going to be joining us in 2 months time.

Have you ever wanted whiter teeth?….
Teeth-whitening can make a huge difference to your smile and your confidence and can be used to treat varying degrees of discoloration.One of the world’s most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments, teeth-whitening is an opportunity for patients to start afresh when it comes to the aesthetics of their smile.Enlighten’s Evolution™ at Moonlight Dental SurgeryHere at Moonlight Dental Surgery, we use a market leader in teeth-whitening technology, Enlighten’s Evolution™, which is considered the world’s best whitening system. Enlighten’s Evolution™ has long lasting results and is a great option with people who have sensitive teeth.Your dentist at Moonlight Dental Surgery will take impressions of your teeth, so that custom whitening trays can be created. The whitening peroxide agent that’s responsible for whitening the teeth will be applied via these whitening trays, once we receive them back from Enlighten’s Evolution™. The fact that the whitening trays are made to measure is very important for safety: one-size-fits-all trays used by non-medical professionals put patients at risk of irrevocable damage to their gums, as the whitening agent can leak over. Remember to always approach a dentist for this treatment.You can then start treatment at home and return to the practice for a 20-minute in-surgery whitening, performed by your dentist.How will teeth-whitening treatment benefit you?Feel great about your smile.Restore your confidence.Custom treatment that centres around your tooth dimensions.Minimally invasive treatment.Enlighten’s Evolution™ has a 99% success rate.
