What foods do I have to avoid?

Fortunately, there are only a few foods that should be avoided while in braces – primarily hard foods and sticky foods. For example, foods such as peanut brittle and candied apples can not only be very difficult to clean from braces, but can even loosen bands and brackets or break them and can bend or break the arch wires. There are many more foods that you can eat than those you can’t.

If you qualify for Invisalign treatment, you will not have to avoid any foods because there will be no fixed brackets, bands or wires to loosen, break or bend.
