As Halloween approaches, we wanted to share some suggestions to make this one a braces success story. Halloween can still be a lot of fun since there are some braces-friendly Halloween treats.
We suggest looking for candies (and foods in general) that are soft, not sticky, chewy, hard or crunchy. Some examples are M&Ms which can "melt in your mouth...”. Just be sure to avoid the ones with the nuts in the center. Plain chocolate candy is fine, as well as peanut butter cups. Please just be sure that you remember to brush and floss afterwards.
Bobbing for apples and biting into caramel apples are not recommended for orthodontic patients (unless you’re into broken brackets and jaw joint pain!). However, patients can enjoy thinly sliced apples, dipped in yogurt or creamy chocolate sauce.
‘Wishing everyone a Spook-tacular holiday!
