Summer-Safe Snacks for Braces

Medical Professionals Marietta GA

Now that the weather is turning warm, we almost instinctively start reaching for those summertime favorites to help keep us cool. And whether you’re 12 or 42 and in braces, knowing which foods are safe for orthodontic appliances can help you keep your smile out of trouble.

Here are a few favorites that are safe, as long as you’re careful!

Watermelon
Seedless watermelon that’s cut up into bite-size pieces is a great, healthy snack. Plus, it’s packed with fiber. As long as you’re not biting down into big pieces and the melon is fully ripe, you should be fine.

Snow Cones
Even though they’re loaded with sugar, it’s ok to indulge every now and then. Just take care to rinse your mouth out afterward and brush your teeth. The cold could make metal appliances zing with sensitivity, so try not to hold it in your mouth for very long. A snow cone is probably easier for you to eat than something like an ice cream sandwich.

Banana Pudding
Ripe bananas, pudding, and vanilla wafers drenched in cream. Your mouth is probably watering just thinking about it. Since banana pudding is so soft, it’s easy to eat without having to worry about displacing an orthodontic wire.

Sliced Cucumbers and Dip
Instead of crunchy chips or hard carrots, slice up a cucumber and enjoy your favorite dip. That way you can still snack during parties and shave off a few calories too (that way you can have more dip!)

  • We are beyond thankful for Dr. Kincer and his team!! Dr. Kincer is one of the most honest and conservative Orthodontist, which is a VERY rare find in the industry. We moved to south Florida about halfway through our treatment of 18 months and did not switch orthodontists; that’s how much Dr. Kincer means to us! Our daughter’s smile is absolutely beautiful!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the BEST at what he does!!! Both of my girls have been under Dr. Kincer's care, with exceptional results. They both began treatment at age 8, because of their tiny mouths that required Phase I and Phase II treatments. As a result of his recommended treatment plan, our girls will have exceptional teeth for life. Our family is incredibly thankful for Dr. Kincer's meticulous care that resulted in BEAUTIFUL smiles!!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the best. I am almost a year into my treatment and i have nothing but great things to say. He is so kind and his team is amazing. They are simply amazing and truly care for what their customers need and what their teeth need. I highly recommend Doctor Kincer to anyone looking for orthodontics.

  • Excellent orthodontist. Invisalign was the best money I ever spent on myself. Dr. Kincer is meticulous, thorough, has attention to detail, and fixed my flared teeth. Everyone is always complimenting my smile. He is always timely, professional, and his support staff (Jennifer and Lynn) are really caring. He is able to shave down teeth to make them aesthetically fit my smile and proportions. Dr. Kincer and Lynn really make sure their patients are comfortable-- especially when it comes down to removing attachments for invisalign and IPR, when your teeth are already sensitive. I recommended him to my brother and little cousin for orthodontic work and for their retainers :)

  • After having my braces off for 12 years. I go in today to see my little sister get her braces off, and Dr. Kincer readjusted my Old retainers to fit again!! He is a great orthodontist!

  • Our family has been using Dr. Kincer for the past 10 years. Our oldest daughter has had amazing transformations with her treatment and our second is shaping up to do the same. Couldn't ask for a better, more friendly place.
