Brace Friendly Foods

Top Tips

When a brace has been fitted it is important to be more careful on the foods you eat and how you eat them. Foods that are too hard/sticky/sugary or chewy can damage the brace, or could increase your risk of tooth decay. We advise the following:


Foods To Avoid:

  • Sticky and sugary foods/sweets – chewing gum, sticky sweets (e.g. wine gums, fruit pastels, toffee etc),
  • Hard, crunchy foods – nuts, pork crackling, over cooked pizza crusts, crunchy cereal, popcorn etc
  • Fizzy drinks – energy drinks, coca cola, lemonade, fizzy water, etc
  • Cut foods into small bite-size pieces – apples, carrots, pizza, meat etc
