PALO ALTO, Calif. - Oct. 9, 2017 - PRLog -- Halloween brings on plenty of sweet treats that can cause damage to braces or result in tooth decay if consumed regularly. Wu Orthodontics, the practice of Dr. Eric Wu, is offering families braces-friendly Halloween tips to help orthodontic patients and parents enjoy the holiday.

Braces-friendly Teeth Tips for Halloween:

• Limit your intake of candy and consider avoiding it altogether
• Look for softer treats, such as soft chocolate or peanut butter cups, or melt-in-your-mouth foods
• Any foods that are sticky, chewy, hard or crunchy should be avoided by anyone wearing braces or retainers
• Always brush your teeth after consuming sweet treats

The American Association of Orthodontists recognizes National Orthodontic Health Month each October to increase public awareness of the positive impact orthodontic care can have on both children and adults' dental health.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment:
