Heintz Orthodontics recently set up a display at the Hayner Public Library. The month of October is National Orthodontic Health Month! We know Halloween is a fun time for people of all ages. But too much candy can contribute to tooth decay and unexpected trips to the Orthodontist. Eating to many chewy, sticky foods can harm your braces and end up lenghtening treatment time. Children who wear braces should avoid such snacks as caramel, nuts, hard candies, licorice, taffy, popcorn, jelly beans, tootsie rolls and bubblegum. Candies like chocolate or other melt-in-your-mouth varieties are acceptable in moderation. We hope you get a chance to stop by the mall and check out our display. It is very festive and also educational. Here is a sneak peek...:-) Have a safe and Happy Halloween!!!
