With braces, you’re on your way to a beautiful smile.
While you are on this journey, please be aware that eating certain types of food can damage your braces — and make your daily oral hygiene routine more challenging.
Not to worry, your orthodontic treatment will all be worth it in the end! But in the meantime, you’ll want to pay special attention to what you eat.
Let’s start with the foods you should eat and avoid.
Foods to AVOID with braces
- Smaller cuts of fruits and vegetables
- Light/slim crackers or cookies
- Mashed potatoes
- Hulless popcorn
- Cheese and other dairy products
- Peanut butter and jelly
- Macaroni and other pasta and noodle dishes
Foods you CAN eat with braces
- Sticky and hard candy
- Corn chips
- Sticky/Hard chocolates
- Hard cookies or crackers
Braces also need the proper care it deserves just like your teeth.
