Are You Taking Care Of Your Orthodontic Braces?

Halloween is right around the corner.  A fun time for trick or treat but what do you get to eat if you're wearing orthodontic braces?

We admit, any toffee or licorice shouldn't even make it home.  You have to remember the stickier and chewier the candy, the more damage it can do to your braces.  But orthodontic braces don't have to be a nightmare at Halloween - just avoid anything hard and crunchy or soft and sticky!

That means you get to enjoy chocolate and treats like regular M&M's and any candy bar without caramel.

So, it's not so bad.  Have a safe, fun Halloween and remember to BRUSH and FLOSS your TEETH - regardless of what you eat.
