The Perfect Meal After Getting Your Braces Tightened

Foods to Avoid With Braces

  • Sticky/hard candy
  • Popcorn
  • Pretzels
  • Seeds
  • Nuts
  • Tough-to-chew meats

How to Eat with Braces

How you eat with braces is also very important. Dr. Watson encourages patients with braces to chew their food slowly so that they don’t bite down too hard on anything. Another tip Dr. Watson offers patients is to cut their food up into smaller pieces, especially apples, carrots, chewy bread, and spaghetti noodles. Moreover, biting using the side of your mouth is much easier.
