Which Sweets Can I Eat with Braces?

The latest techniques and technology within the dentistry industry means that straight teeth and a pearly white smile are more accessible than ever before. However, when it comes to orthodontics, certain dietary alternations must be made in order to maintain dental hygiene, prevent tooth decay and to protect your braces.

Anything sticky and chewy can basically be considered as a no go, as these types of sweets and chocolates can not only get stuck in between the braces but also add a lot of pressure to the teeth in the process, making it unsafe to eat any hard, textured or chewy sweets.

Sometimes sweets can get caught between the wires of metal braces, making it important to brush regularly. Most dentists recommend brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing regularly to remove any food debris – this is even more important during dental treatment. Thankfully, some types of sweets are safe to eat when wearing braces.

Sweets To Avoid

Anything that is hard, crunchy or chewy should be avoided, including:

  • Nuts
  • Ice
  • Hard chocolate
  • Toffees
  • Set caramel
  • Boiled sweets
  • Liquorice
  • Fudge
