Maintaining Orthodontic Health During Halloween

a pile of candy corn candy

Halloween is upon us, and this time of year is when we begin to enjoy treats, you may otherwise turn down. Children love getting to dress up and wander the streets in search of tricks and treats!

It’s easy to get carried away with Halloween candy binges. Not all candy will cause problems for your braces, but there are a few candies to steer clear of while you have your braces on. If you do receive a candy that you can’t eat, see if your friends or siblings will make a trade!

Braces-Friendly Treats

  • Powder candy 
  • Nougat-filled candy bars 
  • Soft cookies 
  • Liquid candy 
  • Malted milk balls 
  • Peanut butter cracks 
  • Solid bars of chocolate (white, milk, or dark) 

Treats to Avoid 

  • Hard candies 
  • Caramels 
  • Popcorn 
  • Taffy 
  • Sticky candy
  • Fruit snacks
  • Chewing gum 
  • Skittles 

When it comes to Halloween treats, follow the motto ‘when in doubt, throw it out’! From all of us at Kuhni Orthodontic Studio in Spanish Fork, Utah, we wish you a safe and healthy Halloween!
