    There is a list of foods you should definitely avoid once you start wearing braces.  Some of them are listed here:

    • Chewy foods: bagels, hard rolls, licorice
    • Crunchy foods: popcorn, ice, chips
    • Sticky foods: caramels, gum
    • Hard foods: nuts, candy
    • Foods you have to bite into: corn on the cob, apples, carrots
    • Chewing on hard things (for example, pens, pencils or fingernails) can damage the braces. Damaged braces will cause treatment to take longer.
