• Braces Friendly Stocking a Good Addition to Christmas

  • christmas sock-21636_640Mom and dad, how disappointed is your child going to be when she opens her stocking and it’s full of candy? Candy she shouldn’t be eating.

    With just a little bit of effort you can make a braces-friendly stocking.

    Here are something you could put in that socking. Toss the candy canes and the Hershey Kisses.

    Try these ideas:

    • Enough sugar free gum to last through Easter.
    • Dental Wax
    • A frame with a “before” braces picture on one side and blank spot for the after picture when the braces come off.
    • A certificate for a meal she can’t eat now, but can look forward to when the braces come off.
    • Chap stick
    • Go gurt
    • Fruits
    • Fun and colorful tooth brushes
    • Mouthwash
    • A small blender she can use to liquefy hard-to-chew fruits.

    This will give your child a memorable Christmas. This will add some positive feeling toward this time in her life.
