Foods to Avoid

If you take care of your braces, your braces will take care of you!

NO STICKY FOODS OR CANDY:

Braces can be pulled apart with sticky foods.

  • Carmel
  • Gum
  • Taffy
  • Etc.

NO HARD FOODS OR CANDY:

Bands and brackets can bend, loosen or break off with hard food. Do not chew hard foods.

  • Raw Carrots
  • Whole Apples
  • Nuts
  • Popcorn
  • Pizza Crust
  • Ice
  • Hard Candy
  • Etc.

 

DO NOT EAT ANYTHING HIGH IN SUGAR:

Sugar will feed the bacteria that cause cavities.

NO CARBONATED SODA BEVERAGES, SUGARY JUICES OR SPORTS DRINKS:

Drinks that are high in sugar and are acidic should be avoided completely.

It is helpful to cut your food into small bite-size pieces. If you chew your food carefully and follow the food selection advice, your chances of broken or loose brackets will be much less.

The rewards of braces:

  • Straight Teeth
  • A Beautiful Smile
  • Healthy Mouth
