Keep Your Smile Boo-tiful This Halloween.

October 1, 2018

Here are some tips and tricks to make this year’s Halloween a treat for your teeth!

With Halloween quickly approaching, the stores are already full of costumes and candy. If you have braces, Halloween can be like looking in the window of a haunted house – you want to go in, but you know you shouldn’t. Popped brackets, broken wires, and the risk of cavities sound like a horror movie in itself.

Here are some tips to make your Halloween a little less spooky:

If all else fails, and you just can’t kick the candy cravings, consider donating your candy to the troops overseas, a soup kitchen, homeless shelter, senior center, women’s shelter or food bank. You can also check with your dentist to see if they offer a Halloween buyback program to exchange candy for other small gifts and non-candy treats. As with everything, moderation is key. You can still enjoy Halloween and indulge in a little candy. If you know what to choose and how to keep your mouth healthy, spending Halloween in braces doesn’t have to be so scary after all.
