It's that time of year again, that strikes fear in orthodontic offices around the country...HALLOWEEN!! We understand you can't (and shouldn't!) miss out on the trick-or-treating fun, but we do ask that you watch what kinds of candy you are putting in your mouth...
Here is a short list of braces-friendly treats for you to enjoy:
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (Dr. Forcier's personal favorite...)
Oreo’s & Soft Cookies
Hershey Bars & Hershey Kisses
Candy bars without caramel or nuts
BAD TREATS: these are the hard, sticky, chewy, crunchy candies
Hard candy (Jolly Ranchers)
Chewy Candy (Tootsie Rolls)
Keep in mind, if in doubt...go without! It's not worth breaking a bracket and prolonging your treatment for that piece of candy.
And as always, brush and floss after any sugary treat! Have a spook-tactular Halloween!!
