The Latest Buzz

Monday, October 1, 2012

October is National Orthodontic Health Month.
October also winds up with Halloween, one of
our favorite holidays. Kids with braces need to
be careful when they bite into treats.
Remember caramels, taffy, nuts, bubble gum,
popcorn kernels and suckers are some of the
foods you’re not to have! Eating these “off
limit” foods will break your braces and lengthen
treatment time.
Bobbing for apples is not recommended for
braces. Orthodontic patients can enjoy thinly
sliced apples, dipped in yogurt or creamy
chocolate sauce.
Of course, Halloween does not have to be
completely treat-less. Plain chocolate candy is
OK, provided you remember to brush and floss
afterwards!
