The Perfect Christmas Cookies for Braces

It’s hard to resist a classic holiday staple like Christmas cookies. Those with braces, however, can’t give in to all of their cookie cravings. Some cookie recipes aren’t braces friendly. Crunchy gingerbread or shortbread cookies could cause brackets to break or wires to snap. Cookies topped with sticky caramel or jellies could stick to appliances and do harm. While giving up some holiday recipes are a must, Christmas cookies aren’t one that needs to be completely checked off of the list. KCC Orthodontics approves of this soft sugar cookie recipe for those with braces.

The combination of ingredients makes for a light dough that, when cooked, can be easily bitten into. These cookies don’t crunch! In order to get started, you’ll need:

  • 3 ¾ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

The recipe is from All Recipes and can be found by clicking here. Once baked, they can be topped with your favorite icing recipe. Be careful when decorating. Many sprinkle options can make the braces friendly treat too crunchy for those with braces. Stay away from these cookie toppings:

  • Crushed hard candies
  • Sugar pearls
  • Gummy candies
  • Caramel

Having braces won’t stop you from enjoying the tastes of the holidays! While not every Christmas sweet is going to be braces friendly, this recipe from All Recipes gets our stamp of approval. Check out our webpage on braces care for a list of other braces friendly food. KCC Orthodontics wants this Christmas season to make you smile bright!

Retainers are for L I F E , as long as you want to keep your teeth straight and your bite sitting properly.

Retainer wear is crucial to the longevity of your orthodontic treatment results!

🔹 wear retainers everyday
🔹 wear them full time or night time only (depending what Dr. G informs you)
🔹 wear retainers on vacation
🔹 wear retainers after you get married
🔹 wear retainers at your friends house

& IF they break, get lose, or eaten by the dog - call us right away! We are more than happy to get you a new retainer made so that you don’t have to go through orthodontic treatment again.

Wondering what to expect at your first orthodontic appointment? Here it is!

🔹🔹🔹
You'll be introduced by our team at the front desk. The ladies will get you checked in and make sure your paperwork is complete.

Then Carmen (pictured left) will come introduce herself and get you (or your child) to take initial records.

After that, Amy or Nessa (pictured middle and right) will introduce themselves and bring you into one of our Treatment Coordinating offices.

Here, the doctor will provide an assessment of your teeth and bite and talk to you and the treatment coordinator about the treatment plan.

You'll have a chance to ask questions during this time!

Our treatment coordinator will wrap up your appointment by presenting estimated treatment fees and answering any final questions.

If you'd like, we can go ahead and get you scheduled then before you leave!
🔹🔹🔹

Have any additional questions? We're always here to help! (281) 392-0888.
