This is just a quick list, but in general, you’ll want to avoid foods that are sticky, crunchy, or hard, as well as sugary drinks.


Be sure to brush your teeth twice daily and floss. This is very important while you’re wearing your braces to prevent cavities and stains. While these tips are for teens with braces and kids with braces, our growing number of adult patients have found them helpful too!
