    What Foods Can You Eat With Braces?

    When you get braces from Arvay Orthodontics in Morristown NJ or Flanders NJ, what you can and can’t eat will become something to think about. Foods like nuts and hard candy can damage/break your braces and biting into hard foods can pull the brackets and wires from your teeth. These things can be painful and prolong treatment. Dr. Arvay also stresses that patients avoid foods that are chewy, crunchy, sticky, or gooey!
