Eating with Braces


Don't worry, you'll be eating popcorn and snacking on potato chips again in no time! However, before you can start enjoying some of the treats you love, you will need to take special care to avoid foods that could damage your appliances during treatment.

Foods to Avoid with Braces:

  • Chewy foods — bagels, licorice
  • Crunchy foods — popcorn, chips, ice
  • Sticky foods — caramel candies, chewing gum
  • Hard foods — nuts, hard candies, pizza crust
  • Foods that require biting into — corn on the cob, apples, carrots
