Foods that You Can eat With Braces

Posted on 3/8/2021 by John Black
Foods that You Can eat With BracesBraces are undoubtedly one of the most popular orthodontic treatments for correcting many dental issues, but there's no denying the fact that they can complicate your daily routine.
Among many other things, eating and chewing is a serious issue for a lot of people with braces.

If you have braces, you can probably relate to having to give up a number of your favorite foods because they either get stuck in the wires or cause pain in the tooth and gum area.

However, there's nothing to worry about because there are many different kinds of foods that you can easily eat with braces.

Braces-Friendly Foods

Braces often cause a lot of sensitivity in the mouth that can linger for days, so it is best to stick to soft foods, especially during the first few days.
Take a look at some soft foods that you can eat and chew with braces without any problem.

•  yogurt
•  mashed potatoes
•  soups
•  pasta
•  soft fruits
•  moist desserts
•  milk
•  oatmeal
•  cooked soft vegetables
•  scrambled eggs
•  soft cheeses

The idea here is to eat foods that are soft, easily chewable, and don't have any rough textures. If you eat things like crackers, pretzels, chips, hard candy, and nuts, not only are you likely to experience tooth pain, but the bands or the wires on your braces can possibly become loose as well.
So, it is best to be safe and eat only those foods which are easy to chew and aren't likely to get stuck in your teeth or braces' wires.

If you wear braces and are experiencing any kind of sensitivity or pain in the teeth, book an appointment with us at South Main Dental. Dr. Black and can help you by examining your teeth and then suggesting the right treatment options based on the severity of the pain or sensitivity.
