Halloween is a haven for sweet treats and sticky eats, but individuals undergoing orthodontic treatment usually have to give the best part of the holiday a miss. Everything that you love about indulging after your trick-or-treating jaunt is put on hold — usually for several years — because your dentist and orthodontist have informed you that delicious candy could easily cause you to damage your brackets or wires. This is just one more reason for Invisalign wearers to appreciate not having to deal with the pain of braces while still having the stunning smile that they desire.
Be Smart with Candy
If you have a major sweet tooth, Halloween may be your very favorite holiday. With Invisalign, all you have to do is pop out your aligners and enjoy your treat! When you’re ready to put your aligners back in, simply rinse out your mouth with water if you’re not near your toothbrush. That will keep your Invisalign from being inserted on top of sugary candy residue on your teeth. Even sticky treats such as caramel and chewing gum are not out of the question, which is a huge plus for most kids — and adults!
Enjoy Your Smile!
With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about braces distracting from your fabulous costume, which is a huge perk for this dressy holiday. Invisalign dentistry is meant to be very discreet and can even be difficult to see unless you are really looking for them. This allows you to look great in all those Halloween selfies without any feeling of self-consciousness that could come from having a silvery smile with braces. One of the best memories you can have is of your Halloween pranks with friends, and you won’t have to worry about wincing every time you look back on your Facebook or Instagram memories in the coming years.
As always with Halloween, it’s important to indulge intelligently. You don’t want to end up with extra holiday pounds that will last long after your Invisalign treatment is complete. Instead, look for sensible ways to enjoy the holiday with smaller treats that won’t send you to the dentist for fillings in the future. Are you ready to get out there and get some candy — and a beautiful smile? With Invisalign, you will be able to keep your teeth moving in the right direction while still enjoying the food that you love without fear of breaking your braces.
