14 Mind-Blowing Things You Didn’t Know About Halloween Candy
How much Americans really spend on Halloween, the history of “fun size” candy, and more sweet facts about your favorite Halloween treats.
A lot of people hand out Halloween candy
Of the 157 million people who participate in Halloween, more than 141 million buy candy. That’s almost 45 percent of the entire U.S. population filling plastic pumpkins and pillowcases with sugary goodness. This is what 100 calories of your favorite Halloween candy looks like.
The most popular Halloween candy is…
Reese’s. According to USA Today, peanut butter cup sales neared $510 million in 2013. It’s also the most popular candy in the most populated states: California and Texas. M&M’s came in a close second with more than $500 million in sales in 2013.
Halloween candy is expensive
Consumers spend an average of $2.1 billion on Halloween candy each year, or about $47 per American. As a comparison, they collectively spend $2.6 billion on costumes and $330 million dressing up their pets.
Halloween is not the best holiday for candy sales

Taking good care of your mouth, teeth, and gums is a worthy goal in and of itself. Good oral and dental hygiene can help prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease – and can help you keep your teeth as you get older. However, it’s also important to understand the link between oral health and diseases such as Endocarditis, Cardiovascular disease, and Osteoporosis.

“Healthy Habits are Easier than You Think,” Did you know that October is National Dental Hygiene Month? Why not let us help you focus on maintaining optimal oral health while leading a busy, active lifestyle.
New Patient Exam
Outstanding Care for a Lifetime of Optimal Oral Health
Thank you for choosing the office of Dr. Robert Mitchell for your family’s dental care. Our entire team values the opportunity to give you the personalized attention and beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.
We’ll dedicate two hours for your new patient exam. When you arrive, we’ll give you a tour of our dental office and introduce you to our team. Refreshments are available for your enjoyment, as are Bose music headphones, movie goggles, massagers, and comfortable blankets, hot and cold neck pillows, and warm, scented towels.
Assessing Your Teeth, Gums, and Bite
We will talk to you about your dental needs and the reason for your visit. Then Dr. Mitchell will conduct a thorough exam which will include checking your bite alignment, assessing the integrity of existing dental work, and scanning your teeth for decay using our non-invasive DIAGNOdent laser. About 80% of the population unknowingly has some form of periodontal disease, so we will examine your gums for signs of this stealthy offender and suggest therapies for prevention or treatment. A set of digital X-rays will provide a complete picture of your oral health and aid in accurate diagnosis.
Screening for Oral Cancer
We will check your soft tissues for signs of oral cancer. We use a state-of-the-art tool called Velscope to identify suspicious lesions in the earliest stages. Oral cancer claims the lives of 7,500 Americans each year and often goes undetected until it has spread to the neck and lymph nodes. Early detection increases survival chances, so we will screen you for oral cancer at your new patient exam and subsequent checkups.
We would love to schedule an New Patient Evaluation for you!!!
Please call 972-233-1311 and schedule today.

Although you probably understand that poor dental care can lead to cavities, did you know that other, more serious health problems can also result from poor oral care? The truth is that if you don’t take proper care of your teeth, you could face far more serious consequences than a simple toothache or some unsightly stains such as:
– Cardiovascular disease
– Respiratory infections
– Diabetic complications

If you could see your future smile, would you spend another day with misaligned, stains, discolored teeth, gaps or spaces, or chipped teeth? Let Dr. Mitchell unveil your future smile.
When you decide to correct or enhance your smile, it’s often difficult to determine ahead of time exactly what kind of results to expect. After all, a smile is a pretty personal thing, and changing your smile can feel like changing your identity. That’s where cosmetic digital imaging comes into play. Digital imaging is computer software that allows us to take your digital photograph and manipulate it to reflect the procedures you’re considering. The result is a photo that shows you what your smile would look like after treatment. Whether you’re considering teeth whitening, straightening, bonding, veneers, or a complete smile makeover, digital imaging technology lets you see into your future.
The process is quite simple. Once your dentist has completed your oral exam and discussed your smile goals, a treatment plan will be created. Various digital photos of your current smile will be taken and change factors will be keyed into the computer. The computer will immediately generate one or more graphic images that accurately demonstrate how the changes will affect the appearance of your mouth, as well as your overall facial appearance. It’s a fun process, and it can instigate excitement similar to when a sonogram reveals the gender of a new baby. Plus, you can take a photo of the new you home to share with family or friends.
Informed patients make wise decisions, and digital imaging allows you the opportunity to actually glimpse your future before committing to treatment. What more could you ask for?
