Candies Are Safe For Braces?
Braces-friendly Halloween treats are plentiful. Many candies that melt in your mouth are safe to eat while wearing braces. These include soft snacks that don’t contain sticky substances like caramel, toffee, or nuts.
However, you should avoid sticky foods and chewy candies such as taffy or gum. Hard candies like Jolly Ranchers are also not braces friendly. These can break your brackets and disrupt your treatment.
The most obvious are regular old chocolate bars. Soft chocolate candy that does not contain caramel or nuts can be eaten with braces just like you would without them. Just break your bars into smaller bites or stick with the bite-sized versions of your favorite candies.
Peanut Butter Cups
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Reese's Pieces are also safe to eat with them. Peanut butter is not sticky enough to get stuck in your braces and cause any damage. Like all foods, though, be sure to brush and floss after eating.
Certain other chocolate-covered candies are fine to eat with them. Wafers, mousse, marshmallows, cookies, and other soft treats covered in chocolate are fine to consume. Be sure to eat these in moderation to avoid cavities and gum disease.
