Sticky, hard, and gooey: these candies fill your dopamine receptors with spasms of sugar-filled joy, but if you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment at Vickie Greenberg Orthodontics to straighten your teeth, then these sweets are not so sweet. While you may have a Willy-Wonka-sized sweet tooth, there are some candies you’re going to have to avoid while wearing braces.
Here are five bracket- and wire-destroying culprits that Dr. Vickie Greenberg and our team recommend leaving on the candy aisle and not put in your mouth, no matter how tempting they may be.
Have any more questions about what you can and can’t eat when you have braces? Please give us a call at our convenient Altadena, CA office to learn more, or ask Dr. Vickie Greenberg during your next adjustment visit!
