Foods to Avoid With Braces | Perelmuter and Goldberg Orthodontics
Ever wondered what foods you should avoid if you are getting/if you have braces? Some would think it’s an obvious answer, but there may be some things that surprise you! Hard, sticky and foods high in sugar should be avoided when you have braces. Otherwise, they can damage your wires and brackets.
See a list of things to avoid below:
- Gum (sugar-free or regular)
- Sugar Daddies
- Tootsie Rolls
- Ice Cream
- Sweetened tea
- Drinks with sugar
It’s important to check your braces for bent or loose wires/brackets, in the case you indulge in one of these foods and need a repair. For more information on braces maintenance, reach out to our office at 502.897.1112 and schedule a consultation/appointment today.
