Trick-or-Treating with Braces

Are you sporting that wonderful metallic smile this year for Halloween? Think you aren’t going to be able to enjoy ANY of your hard earned candy for fear of breaking a bracket? Well, have no fear! McBeth Orthodontics and the American Association of Orthodontics have some simple tips for what kinds of candy you CAN enjoy; and which ones would be better suited for donation to our 2nd Annual Candy Buy Back Program to mail to our brace-less troops overseas!

Here is what you want to avoid and perhaps donate to the Halloween Candy Buy Back Program:

All hard candies
All chewy candies
Caramel
Nuts
Licorice
Taffy
Jelly beans
Hard pretzels
Bubblegum
Popcorn (including unpopped kernels)

So what can you have? How about chocolate, peanut butter cups, thinly sliced apples, gelatin, ice cream or anything else that is soft and able to melt in your mouth!
