Top Foods to Eat and Avoid with Braces from Warrnambool Dental

by | Nov 10, 2020 | Orthodontics

With or without braces, maintaining a well-balanced diet is always recommended because of its several health benefits for the body.

If you are wearing dental braces, you need to avoid foods you usually consume during the time you haven’t had them yet.

To ensure a smoother transition, consider making healthy food choices for the first couple of days until you become used to your new braces.

Foods We Recommend

  1. Smaller cuts of fruits and vegetables
  2. Light/slim crackers or cookies
  3. Mashed potatoes
  4. Hulless popcorn
  5. Cheese and other dairy products
  6. Peanut butter and jelly
  7. Macaroni and other pasta and noodle dishes

What NOT to Eat

  1. Nuts
  2. Ice
  3. Popcorn
  4. Sticky and hard candy
  5. Corn chips
  6. Sticky/Hard chocolates
  7. Hard cookies or crackers

While wearing dental braces, it’s important to follow a healthy, nutritious diet to maintain your general health!

Remember that your teeth are more at risk of cavities when you have braces, so avoid consuming foods or drinks rich in sugar content.
