The tough CRUST of PIZZA is the best part, and the place where all of the bent wires start.
A HARD ROLL or PRETZEL or BAGEL or BONE, will knock off the braces so leave them alone.
DORITOS and TACOS with shells that are hard can be feed to the birdies in the back yard.
POPCORN and movies are fun for all, but the pain POPCORN causes is no fun at all.
BEEF JERKY and SLIM JIMS are fun to eat, but for wrecking your braces, they’re hard to beat.
All RIBS and MEATS that are found on the BONE are the types of foods that should be left alone.
CORN ON THE COB you should never eat, but removed from the cob, it can taste just as sweet.
RAW CARROTS and HARD FRUITS are good for your body, but they damage your braces which is very naughty.
HARD CANDY and LOLLIPOPS are a sweet delight, but will damage your braces if you ever bite.
CARMEL and TAFFY and ALL TYPES OF GUM, stick to your braces which isn’t much fun.
Biting ICE from a cool drink is refreshing I know, but it destroys your braces, so 1000 times NO.
PENS and PENCILS aren’t food, but will ruin your braces; if you chew them they cause lots of unhappy faces.
You’ve read the poem and now you’ve found out, all the foods on the “NO” list are the foods to leave out.
If you want to eat foods you’re not sure are all right, give us a call before taking a bite.
It’s tough to stop eating these foods for a while, but remember it’s all for a beautiful smile.
