It’s Halloween- Avoid sticky situations

At Opus1 orthodontic studio we’re all about Halloween, costumes and fun with our friends! We want you to have a good time too! With just a few simple rules, you will avoid emergency orthodontic fixes and extra time at the office.

We recommend our patients obey the following rules:

  • Avoid sticky situations. Stay away from hard sticky candy, and chewy treats. These include caramel, licorice, taffy, and bubblegum.
  • Careful with the crunchy snacks like peanuts and nut filled candies, taco chips and popcorn.
  • Enjoy some of the safer alternatives such as soft chocolates, peanut butter cups or soft cookies.
  • Brushing and flossing are more important than ever during the Halloween season, when teeth may receive more exposure to sweets that can cause cavities.

Treat yourself to a healthy smile this Halloween and all year round!
