Halloween Trick or Treating with Braces: Which Candies to Avoid

Orthodontist serving Stapleton, Denver, Cherry Creek & Nearby Areas of Colorado

Braces create straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. The treatment is so rewarding once complete. To get to that point, you need to avoid certain foods that can damage your braces. When a wire is bent or a bracket loosened, it can extend the length of your treatment. We want your treatment to stay on track!

Halloween can still be enjoyed with braces, but you need to pass on some of the most common types of candy. Anything hard, really chewy or sticky may damage your braces. But treats that are soft, like chocolate that melts in your mouth, are generally safe for orthodontic patients.
