Eating these foods often loosen the braces. With delay in the treatment of your beautiful faces. So avoid these foods, whether girl or boy. For your new, healthy smile will give us great joy. The braces won’t last forever, you know. And when it’s all over…YES-YES, not NO-NO. After eating foods with sugar, brush if you can. But always rinse with water if no brush is at hand.
- The CRUST of the PIZZA is the best part,
As well as the place where bent wires start.
- HARD ROLLS & PRETZELS & BAGELS & BONES,
Knock off brackets and wires, so leave them alone.
- DORITOS & TACOS and all the rest.
Will form a hard ball...making your braces a mess.
- POPCORN & movies are fun for all,
But the pain that it causes is no fun at all.
- NUTS are always very good, too,
But we’ll have to say NO nuts to you.
- BEEF JERKY & SLIM JIMS are fun to eat,
But for wrecking your braces, they’re hard to beat.
- RIBS & MEATS that are on the BONE...
Those kinds of foods you should leave alone.
- RAW CARROTS and rabbits go together well,
But the damage that is caused is easy to tell.
- SUCKERS are always a sweet delight,
But damage your braces if you ever bite.
- CARAMEL CANDY & JU-JU BEANS
Are a gooey mess and lots of fun.
But they’ll pull off the brackets and feed your bacteria.
So my good friend, don’t let them go near ya.
- ALL GUMS are fun to chew.
But wait until braces are off of you.
- PENS & PENCILS are food for thought.
But think of the havoc that can be wrought.
- SODA is sugary and eats your teeth away.
But lemonade or juice is always A-OK.
- ICE is nice in the heat we all know.
But they destroy your braces, so a thousand times NO.
