After you get your braces put on, and sometimes following adjustments, your teeth might be a little sensitive but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise some of your favorite foods. Softer foods and cold drinks and treats can work wonders. Here are a few items we suggest adding to your grocery shopping list:
Remember: Try not to bite into food, like raw apples and carrots or bagels, with your front teeth. Instead, cut everything into bite-size pieces. To avoid damaging your braces or pulling out your spacers, stay away from sticky foods such as Starburst, Skittles, gum (even sugar-free) and taffy. We promise, it will all be worth it in the end when you have a fantastic new smile to show for your efforts!
