Are You one of those who are having that metal-mouth for a long while or the one who is planning to get them soon?Then this article is for You!

Here are the most sinful foods for Your braces that will ultimately end up in either breaking your brackets or wire thus prolonging your treatment.

Here are the kind of food that you should Avoid :-

Nuts – Any nut starting from almonds to the walnuts, are not good for Your braces, so try to stay away from them or if you are a crazy fan of nuts then you have to chop them and then let them hop in mouth.


Snacks – All the hard snacks like hard cookies, pop-corns, corn on a cob, crisp pizza crust and corn chips should be avoided.


Sweets n Candies – All that’s sticky and chewy is a no-no for You, otherwise you will have lots of cavities in your teeth and also your dentist will have a hard time doing your scaling. So hard candies, Caramel chocolates and chewing gums must be avoided


Carrots n Apples – These crunchy veggies and fruits can take your brackets out in a jiffy, if you bite on them as a whole, so if you want to have them then you better cut them into small pieces first and eat with a fork without using your front teeth.


Ice – If you are one of those ice-biting-nerds, then you would have to grow up for a while at least. As munching anything as hard as ice-cubes is a big mistake. So don’t even think about those!


I know, you must be thinking that getting braces takes all your favorite munchers away from you, but it’s not like that, stay tuned for the food that You should eat and also some yummy recipes for all the metal-mouths or as my husband calls it, for all the metal-Marry..….

Till then don’t forget your scheduled visit to our dental clinic for your once a month brace tightening and cleaning….
