Hosting a party or just watching the game with your family? Celebrate the big game in style by making up one of these delicious and braces-friendly Super Bowl snacks — your teeth will thank you later!
Chicken Buffalo Dip was the top searched-for recipe last year for the Superbowl. The year before that was the 7-layered dip. We’ve included them both and some others you may like that are all braces-friendly. Plan to use your recipes; great! If not, click on the recipe name or picture for a link to a five-star recipe.
Chicken Buffalo Dip
You can enjoy your seven-layered dip with Pringles, Cheese Puffs, Veggie Chips, Kale Chips, soft pretzels, or sweet potato fries.
Avoid hard, fried foods such as corn chips, tortilla chips, Cheetos, Kettle chips, and hard pretzels. Crunchy foods can get stuck between the wires of your braces and bend them. If you crunch down hard, pressure on your braces’ wires may cause your brackets to break off your teeth.
Same goes for your seven-layered dip. Stick to eating softer, baked finger foods to dip, and avoid hard, crunchy finger foods.

Bacon Wrapped Smokies
These sweet and salty bacon-wrapped smokies are a quick and easy party appetizer. Serve them straight from the oven or keep them warm in a slow cooker until the big game starts.
Boneless Buffalo Chicken Wings
Boneless chicken wings are much safer to eat than wings with bones. You can eat wings with bones if you pull the meat off with your fingers or a utensil and then eat the meat. But avoid biting the meat off the bone because you could chew too hard on a bone and damage your braces.
Thinking of Serving a Dessert?
Here is a list of some braces-friendly desserts or treats:
- Brownies (no nuts)
- Soft cookies
- Soft chocolates (no nuts or caramel)
- Ice cream
- Cakes or Cupcakes (no nuts)
- Soft candies such as peanut butter cups, plain M&Ms, and chocolate bars (no nuts)
Whether planning a party or not, we hope you enjoy trying out one of the braces-friendly Superbowl snacks. And don’t forget to floss and brush after the game to clean your teeth and braces and keep them in great shape. If you have any questions about what you can eat with braces, please give us a call.
