Sunbury Dental Celebrates  

Halloween isn’t the only thing Sunbury Dental is celebrating in October. We’re celebrating National Orthodontic Health Month by spreading awareness of some of the treats to enjoy this Halloween, without having the feeling of missing out on the festivities.

By avoiding treats that are chewy, sticky, or hard, patients can choose among the many treats that are braces-friendly, including:

  • Chocolate without nuts
  • Peanut butter cups
  • Milkshakes
  • Gelatin
  • Peeled, thinly sliced apples
  • Ice cream

A Reminder On Dental Hygiene

It’s never a good idea to let sugar loiter on your teeth! Sugar creates a perfect breeding ground for damage to your teeth and gums. Brushing and flossing should always be apart of your daily routine, and becomes more vital when you eat sugary foods. For those wearing braces, this means brushing carefully around your gum line, brackets, and wires.
