Candy You Can Eat With Braces

Having braces can be a challenging adjustment for sure. But luckily there are plenty of candies that you can enjoy while wearing them. You just need to know which ones could potentially get stuck in your teeth, cause damage to your braces, or other problems.


The types of candy you want to stay away from are sweets that are hard, sticky, gooey, and chewy. Candies like these can cause damage to your teeth and braces. These hard and sticky treats can get stuck in the brackets and wires in your braces. It could even cause the brackets to loosen, break or pop off.


Chocolate and Candy Bars

Thankfully there are plenty of chocolate treats you can enjoy. As discussed above, you’ll want to look for chocolate bars that don’t have things in them like caramel, nuts, toffee, M&M’s, or Reese’s Pieces.


If you’re looking for a straight-up sugar rush, here are a few braces-friendly options for you: – Pixy Stix – Cotton Candy – Pop Rocks – Butter Mints – Fun Dip (don’t bite the stick!) – Ring Pop (no biting!)



Cookies, Wafers & Brownies

While not technically candy, goodies like cookies, wafers, and brownies are good for a sweet treat. And thanks to individual-size packs, many people give these out for Halloween treats. To be on the safe side, opt for softer cookies if you can. Also be on the lookout for added nuts, toffee, and sticky caramel that could hurt your teeth or braces.
