Candy and foods that are sticky and chewy, or hard and crunchy, create the biggest problems for kids and adults wearing braces or retainers.
Therefore, in general:

  • Nothing hard
  • Nothing sticky
  • No big mouthful
  • 0No biting into anything hard

And specifically – be sure to avoid:

  • Taffy
  • Hard candy
  • Sticky candy

    Such as:
    • caramels
    • Sugar Daddies
    • Starbursts
    • Carameled Apples
    • Sugar Babies
    • Licorice
    • Toffee
    • Tootsie Rolls
    • Now and laters
  • Popcorn
  • Peanuts
  • Ice
  • Taco chips
  • Whole apples and carrots (cut them into pieces first)
  • Hard French bread crust and rolls
  • Spareribs
  • Corn on the cob (cut the corn off the cob before eating)
  • Bagels
  • Pizza crusts
  • Carrots (uncooked)
  • Doritos
  • Pretzels

 Plain chocolate candy is all right! As long as you brush afterwards.


Crunchy, chewy, sticky, gooey foods can damage your braces and lengthen treatment time.
AND when you follow Dr.Moussa and Dr.Rizk instructions about what to eat and how to keep your braces in good shape your help and cooperation lead to great results!

More people, of all ages, are getting braces than ever  before. When you are in the care of an orthodontist, it’s very important to follow your doctor’s advice and take care of your braces and your teeth.

Be sure to brush and floss often and don’t eat any of foods that Dr.Moussa and Dr.Rizk tell you to avoid because they can break your brackets off.

 Keep thinking-be responsible for keeping your braces in good condition and clean and you will be rewarded with your own beautiful smile!
