Eating with Braces

When undergoing orthodontic treatment with braces, it’s important to be mindful of what you eat to prevent damage and ensure successful treatment. Here are some guidelines for eating with braces:

Foods to Avoid with Braces

To protect your braces and prevent potential issues, it’s recommended to avoid the following foods:

  • Hard and crunchy foods: Hard candies, nuts, popcorn, hard pretzels, and chips can potentially break or damage your braces.
  • Sticky and chewy foods: Caramel, taffy, gummy candies, chewing gum, and sticky snacks can get stuck in your braces and be difficult to clean.
  • Tough meats: Avoid biting into tough cuts of meat, such as steak or jerky, as they can put excessive pressure on your braces.
  • Whole fruits and raw vegetables: Apples, carrots, and other hard or crunchy fruits and vegetables should be cut into smaller, bite-sized pieces before consumption.
  • Foods that require excessive biting or tearing: Corn on the cob, ribs, chicken wings, and other foods that need substantial force to eat should be avoided or modified for easier consumption.

By following these dietary restrictions, you can help prevent damage to your braces and ensure a smooth and effective orthodontic treatment journey.
