Braces-Friendly Foods for the Big Game

Here at Houston Orthodontic Specialists, we know that no Superbowl party is complete without food, friends, and of course, FOOTBALL!

For patients in braces, don’t forget to stay away from those hard, crunchy, sticky, or gummy foods at your Superbowl party. These foods can get caught between braces or worse, damage your orthodontic appliances and delay treatment. So when selecting braces-friendly foods, a good rule of thumb is to stick to soft foods that can easily be cut into pieces, such as:

  • Pigs in a blanket cut into bite-sized pieces.
  • Chili – a fan favorite!
  • Boneless chicken wings/buffalo wings
  • Potato salad
