(HealthDay News) -- Eating healthy is especially important when you have braces. That means avoiding sugary foods, which could lead to plaque build-up and tooth decay.

The American Dental Association's website offers this additional advice for people who wear braces:

  • Don't eat corn on the cob, popcorn and whole apples.
  • Avoid sticky foods, such as chewing gum and chewy candies.
  • Eat a nutritious, balanced diet.
  • Practice good oral hygiene and ask your orthodontist or dentist about any other foods you should avoid.
