Why Candy Canes are Harmful to Your Teeth

Image
No Christmas holiday season is complete without candy canes! Whether you love them or don’t, candy canes are everywhere during the holidays. However you feel about candy canes, if you have braces, you may want to avoid candy canes this holiday season.

Candy canes are one of the worst foods for teeth. Candy canes are 100% sugar. Sugar can lead to cavities, tooth decay, and loss. Candy canes are also one of the hardest treats to eat. One of the types of foods you should stay away from if you have braces (during orthodontic treatment) are hard foods and candies and candy canes fit the criteria perfectly.

Combining both reasons, candy canes take a while to eat, which gives the sugar a reason to linger around longer and form into bacteria, leading to cavities. Here are other treats to stay away from this holiday season that are harmful to our teeth.

Have Braces? Avoid these 3 Treats!

If you have visited any of the many pumpkin patches in Tallahassee, you know Halloween is right around the corner! The time of sweet treats and endless candies are here. While you may have your pumpkin carved out and Halloween costumes planned out, there is one big reminder you shouldn’t forget when it comes to Halloween and your teeth.

If you are in the middle of orthodontic treatment and wear braces there are certain types of candies and foods you should avoid. Trade them for a braces-friendly treat such as pure chocolate, a soft cookie or even ice cream. Here are three types of treats to avoid if you have braces.

1. Nut Containing Candies
Nut containing treats are very popular on Halloween (and other holidays). Avoid these types of treats because they can damage your braces, causing wires to bend or break. If you have a broken or loose appliance, please call us to determine if your breakage is urgent and requires immediate repair. If a piece comes loose, save it and bring it with y…

Happy World Smile Day 2019

Today is a great day because it is World Smile Day. Our smiles are so important for our overall health. Did you know our baby teeth hold space for the permanent teeth that follow – it’s important to hang onto them until they’re ready to come out on their own. Orthodontics are so important because our bite, the way we chew and how we speak is affected by our teeth and smile. Our staff is trained and skilled and each member of our team has years of experience in treating patients with the highest level of care. Here are some incredible smiles on World Smile Day.
