Can I eat candy with braces?

If you have braces and a sugar craving comes along, you might be tempted to sink your teeth into an oozy, gooey candy bar. But can you eat candy with braces? If you've had to ask yourself this very question, the answer probably isn't too surprising. There are tons of foods you can and can't eat with braces. Unfortunately, one of those foods that you can't eat is candy. Candy is specifically not recommended for a number of reasons. Understanding why and how eating candy when you have braces will affect your chances of completing a successful orthodontic treatment—which ultimately affects the health of your teeth and gums in the long run—will hopefully help diminish your cravings for sweet treats while you have braces, and hopefully beyond your orthodontic treatment as well.

Beyond teeth: what’s inside your mouth

Beyond teeth: what’s inside your mouth Educate yourself! Your mouth is made up of more than just teeth, so good oral health goes beyond simply brushing and flossing.
