Braces-Friendly Easter Basket

Braces-Friendly Easter Basket

Easter is almost here! The stores are stocking up with Easter basket candy and we want to make sure you and your child are set up for success. We are here to help you protect the investment in your child’s oral health as well as enjoy all the fun traditions!

Braces-Friendly Easter Basket Options

Chocolate

Plain chocolate, without sticky fillings or hard nuts, is a compatible choice when it comes to braces. So, that yummy chocolate easter bunny? YUP! Chow down. Other chocolate options that would be suitable include Ghirardelli chocolate bars, Reese’s cups, M&M’s, or Andes Mint Chocolates.

Remind your child of the importance of brushing their teeth afterward. We want them to keep their orthodontic progress on track!

Fruit

Fruit may not be your traditional Easter egg filling, but it’s a great option when it comes to braces! You could add softer fruits like oranges, berries, or bananas to their basket. On the plus side, the fruit will be a beautiful addition to their Easter basket!

Bakery Treats

Yes, we mean cookies, muffins, cupcakes, and brownies! Bakery treats are delicious. Additionally, baking can be a tradition you start together this Easter holiday. Remember, as with chocolate, to avoid using any nuts or sticky caramel in your baked goods. These can be damaging to your child’s brackets. As an added bonus, baking from home means you can reduce the sugar or bake a completely sugar-free option as well!

Easter Basket Items to Avoid with Braces

Jelly Beans and Peeps

Ah, we know! Jelly beans and marshmallow bunnies are classic easter basket items. Unfortunately, these sticky candies can cause harm. The stickiness can pull your brackets off your teeth and will require a lot of extra cleaning. Both of these are very high in sugar which increases plaque buildup and can be poor for your oral health.

Cadbury Creme Eggs

While these consist of chocolate, any coated candy will not be a good option this Easter. We know they taste delicious, but they are not braces-friendly! The crunch of the outer shell can bend your wire or break brackets.

Gum

Last, but not least, we recommend not adding gum to your child’s easter basket. Gum can also alter your child’s orthodontic braces. It is best to skip on these options until your child has graduated from orthodontic treatment.

Alternative Options

Any non-food or candy items would be a great alternative for your child’s Easter basket! For your teenager: a gift card, movie tickets, art supplies, or electronic chargers. For your younger child: water guns, chalk, kites, or bubbles.

Easter can be exciting and enjoyable even without food or candy. You could spend Easter doing a memorable activity together as a family. Some of our favorites are dying Easter eggs, picnics, and outdoor nature walks.

KCC Orthodontics hopes that your Easter is a beautiful time spent together as a family. We are praying it is also a memorable one.

Oops, I did it again! I lost my retainer. Who’s been there? ✋

We know it happens! 😎 we know all the secrets. 😂Although it may feel embarrassing, don’t worry about it.

The best thing you can do if you lose your retainer, it breaks, you stop wearing it for a while: ❕Call us right away!! 📱

Waiting too long without a retainer can cause shifting. We would hate to see you have to retreat (go through orthodontic treatment again) because you didn’t wear your retainer.

…ok so let’s be honest here - who’s had to have this conversation with Dr. G???
