Trick-Or-Treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!


That spooky time of year is upon us, and nobody knows the joy of Halloween quite like the kids who will be gobbling up the candy once they get home on Halloween night. If you have braces though, Halloween can be a bit disappointing because some of the candy you can’t eat with braces! Specifically the sticky, chewy, or hard candies are the ones you want to avoid! They can either stick to the brackets or break the brackets right off the tooth! And nobody wants to spend their days after Halloween coming into the office to get their braces fixed up.


Even if you don’t have braces you should still be aware of how much candy you or your child are consuming. The sugar that is in candy can stick to your teeth and if you don’t properly brush and floss your teeth then the bacteria that eat the sugar will start to accumulate on your teeth and could cause cavities or tooth decay.


Now in no way am I saying that you should get rid of all the candy in your life – because candy is delicious and you deserve a Milky Way every once in a while. However just be aware of how much candy to eat and then brush and floss right after to keep those teeth nice and shiny!


If you get so much candy while trick-or-treating and don’t know what to do with it all, our office is holding a Candy Buy Back event through Friday November 4. You will receive $1 per pound of candy all the way up to 10 pounds! Then the candy will be donated to a local food bank or shelter in our area!


I hope everyone has a Spooktacular Halloween tonight! And have a fun and safe time trick-or-treating! And just remember the Tooth Fairy only leaves a present for the teeth that have NO cavities so keep up that brushing!
