Life With Braces

Eating with Braces

What can you eat? Let’s talk about what you can and cannot eat. For the first day or so, you may want to stick to a softer diet until you get fully comfortable with your braces. Avoid chewy candy, and biting into hard breads, and raw vegetables. But you’ll need to protect your orthodontic appliances when you eat for as long as you have your braces.

Foods to Avoid

Chewy foods: bagels, hard rolls, licorice
Crunchy foods: popcorn, ice, chips
Sticky foods: caramels, gum
Hard foods: nuts, candy
Foods you have to bite into: corn on the cob, apples, carrots

Chewing on hard things (for example, pens, pencils or fingernails) can damage the braces. Damaged braces will cause treatment to take longer.
