Updated: Jan 4, 2021

When you have braces, it's important to know which foods to avoid so you can save yourself from broken brackets, pain, stains, and extra trips to the orthodontist.

1. Gum

2. Candy (Mike & Ike's, Starburst, Skittles, Jolly Ranchers, etc.)

3. Apples, specifically biting them whole. Cutting them into slices is preferred.

4. Ice. Chewing on ice is never a good thing.

5. Corn on the cob

6. Ribs

7. Popcorn

8. Chips

9. Croutons

10. Sugary beverages (soda, lemonade, juices, etc.)
