Chew on This — What to Eat and What to Avoid
There’s no escaping – getting braces will impact your lifestyle.
However, with a little effort, you can reduce the impact upon your life and get the most out of your smile investment.
Having dental braces and the food restrictions that come along with them doesn’t mean your diet should suffer.
Maintain healthy eating habits for the duration of your treatment at A Plus Dental.
Do it for your health, do it for your smile!
We suggest trying these soft, easy-to-eat foods — especially when your braces are brand new, as well as throughout treatment, to maintain the integrity of your braces.
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
Remember: When it comes to braces-friendly foods, it’s always best to simply avoid hard, sticky things altogether — ice, hard candies, gum, popcorn, nuts, taffy, caramel, pizza crust, and beef jerky.
These foods can all become easily tangled in your new smile gear. Don’t forget to cut items into smaller, bite-size strips too!
