The SCARY part of Halloween is what all those Halloween treats do to our patients’ teeth and appliances! Don’t get tricked! Please BEWARE of the following which can cause loose or broken appliances:
No nuts in candy bars like Almond Joy or Snickers
No hard candy like Jolly Ranchers or Tootsie Pops
No chewy-gooey candy like Caramels, Gummy Bears, Now and Laters and Sugar
We realize that it isn’t possible to expect our patients not to eat some candy on Halloween. Here are a few suggestions that MAY NOT damage appliances and keep your braces BOOtiful:
Hershey’s Milk Chocolate, Cookies ‘n’ Cream, Mounds, KIT KAT, Nestle Crunch and Milky Way candy bars
Remember to brush immediately after all meals and snacks.
Wishing you a FUN and SAFE Halloween!
