Sturdy, stable and sophisticated; that’s what your dental braces are known for!
However, braces are orthodontic appliances that seek utmost care from the wearer.
With or without braces, eating a well-balanced diet is always advised because of its numerous health benefits for the human body.
But if you are wearing braces, you need to avoid foods you usually consume during the time you haven’t had them yet.
Your diet changes for your braces because this is the best way to keep them damaged-free.
It is important to stay away from certain snacks, given that they can only increase your risk for cavities or worst, destroy your braces. In short, you need to avoid sticky and sugary snacks, as well as hard, crunchy foods. What your braces really need are easy-to-chew on dishes that won’t harm its brackets and wires.
An excellent way to maintain the strength of your braces is picking the right foods that will not damage it.
Check out our list of foods that are good for braces and foods that your braces might hate for chewing.
Here are the ones recommended for braces:
- Smaller cuts of fruits and vegetables
- Light/slim crackers or cookies
- Mashed potatoes
- Hulless popcorn
- Cheese and other dairy products
- Peanut butter and jelly
- Macaroni, and other pasta and noodle dishes
And if you do love your braces a lot, then try not munching on the foodstuffs:
- Sticky and hard candy
- Corn chips
