Happy October, everyone! Tis the season for pumpkin spiced lattes, pumpkin scented candles, and pumpkin-themed decor. It’s spooky season, so it is time to get out in the world and embrace all things Halloween. Everyone, of course, celebrates Halloween differently, and that is okay! Whether you just like to go out and try cool seasonal snacks, or you like to go check out mazes and get the pants scared off you, there is something to do for everyone this Halloween season.
The end of the year means food, snacks, and more food. The treats get sweeter and the amounts of food get larger as the season goes on. It is okay to enjoy treats and indulge your sweet tooth once in a while. If you do decide to have bucket fulls of candy and dark-colored sodas or drinks, remember to maintain your oral health. If you have braces, make sure to avoid candies that are extremely hard like jawbreakers to prevent broken brackets. Also, avoid chewy candies so that they do not get stuck in your brackets and gums. If you have Invisalign, make sure to brush your teeth and floss after every meal or treat before you put your aligners back in.
