Foods You Can Eat with Braces

POSTED BY ON November 17, 2017 WITH 0 COMMENT

When you get braces through Kumra Orthodontics in Washington, DC, what you can and can’t eat will become something to think about. Foods like nuts and hard candy can damage/break your braces, while biting into hard foods can pull away the brackets and wires, all of which could be painful and prolong treatment. Dr. Bob Kumra also stresses that patients avoid foods that are chewy, crunchy, sticky or gooey! So what are foods you can eat with braces?

When you first get your braces, sticking to a diet of very soft foods that require little chewing is suggested. Ice cream may be the first thing that comes to mind, and if you’re going to eat ice cream Dr. Kumra recommends this delicious, braces-friendly, vegan banana ice cream sundae recipe!
