It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Enjoying the holidays can still be wonderful, even when you are wearing braces. Spending time with family, caroling with your friends, pretending to laugh at Uncle Larry’s corny jokes. Seeing people you may not have seen all year gives you a chance to show off your oral bling!
If your child (or niece or nephew, or neighbor kid down the street) has braces, please, parents—make wise choices about what candy to stuff in their stockings, or what treats to send in to school for the holiday party. Kids (and, well, grown-ups, too) can only handle so much temptation before diving face first into a stocking full of candy canes.
For your benefit, we have compiled a list of Do’s and Don’ts for the braces-wearers in your life this holiday season.
See our blog post about a recipe for soft gingerbread cookies as another great gift idea!
Showing your friends and family you care is one of the most important parts of the holiday season. This year, take a little bit of time to make sure the people with braces who you love know that they matter to you. They will be constantly aware of how their food and other choices are impacting their braces, and they may really appreciate someone else being mindful as well.
