It's costume and candy time again!


At Prose Orthodontics, we recognize that Halloween can be a scary
time for teeth!

That’s why during Orthodontic Health Month we are taking the time to discuss some tips and advice to help keep teeth safe from decay, and protect braces, clear aligners and other orthodontic appliances.


Stay away from hard, sticky, crunchy or chewy candy and snacks. Some of these are:
  • Hard or chewy candies
  • Caramel
  • Licorice
  • Taffy
  • Bubblegum (even the sugarless kind)
  • Jelly beans
However, all this does not mean that you cannot enjoy Halloween candy.
There are many delicious sweet choices that are “braces friendly”. Those in orthodontic treatment can indulge by eating soft, nut-free candies, soft candy bars, peppermint patties, peanut butter cups or chocolates that melt in the mouth and require no chewing.



We are also buying back your Halloween candy in exchange for Rewards Points!


If you have any questions please ask. We are here to keep your braces in tip-top shape!
