Avoid ALL hard, sticky, or chewy foods such as:

  • Ice – A thousand times NO! It will totally destroy braces

  • Pizza Crust – The hard crust will bend wires

  • Hard Pretzels – Bends wires, loosens bands, and knocks off brackets

  • Doritos, Tacos, Tostitos, Cheetos, Fritos, etc. – Will form a hard ball and break your braces

  • Caramel candy, bubble gum – Sticky goo which pulls off wires and feeds the bacteria in your mouth

  • Hard Rolls, Bagels – Bends wires and knocks off brackets

  • Beef Jerky, Slim Jims – Tough as nails

  • Suckers, hard candy – Loosens bands and knocks off brackets.

  • Nuts – No nuts of any kind

  • Ribs – Knocks off brackets
