Can you eat licorice with braces? No. Due to the licorice’s sticky and chewy texture, it is typically not advised to consume licorice while wearing braces. Licorice’s gummy consistency makes it challenging to chew and may get caught in the wires and brackets of your braces. Your braces may become damaged or your gums and teeth may become irritated as a result. Additionally, licorice contains a lot of sugar, which can exacerbate existing dental health problems and raise the risk of tooth decay. It is generally advised to refrain from consuming licorice when wearing braces for these reasons. You can replace them with a variety of other delicious and healthful snacks.
