It’s almost time to dress up for Halloween, and if you haven’t already started, it is definitely time to get your costume planned. Since we are dental professionals, we thought we would give you a few tooth-related costume ideas for both young and old.
This one’s a classic, and has been especially popular in recent years with young and old alike with the popularity of TV characters like Count Von Count on Sesame Street and TV shows like True Blood and the Vampire Diaries. The other driver behind this is of course the Twilight movie series. You do not have to get all sparkly, vampires have been portrayed in all sorts of forms, from friendly to frightening. A black cape and some fake fanged plastic teeth are the traditional elements but make the costume your own and you will stand out.
Tooth and Tooth Fairy
What little girl does not want to dress up as a fairy? So why not make it the tooth fairy? But If you are planning a couples costume, you have got to check out the tooth and Tooth Fairy costumes that a blogger Julie Ann designed. The post on her website (click here to visit the site) even includes DIY instructions on how to create your own.

Take a long white pillow case, cut the letters C-R-E-S-T out of felt and stick a lamp shade on your head.
No matter what your Halloween costume is just make sure to brush after eating all that Halloween candy. If you overindulge on some of the stickier sweets you may even want to schedule a teeth cleaning at our dental office in Ellijay.
