When your orthodontist finishes putting those shiny new braces on your teeth, they’re going to give you a list of foods that you’re not supposed to eat. However, instead of focusing on what you can’t eat, focus on all the great stuff you can: it’ll make the experience much more positive. If your big day at the orthodontist is coming up, this video from YouTube’s wmtv15 will help you find out exactly what you‘re free to eat when you’ve got braces!
Now about those foods you shouldn’t be eating. The orthodontist doesn’t tell you not to eat these foods just to make you miserable! In fact, there’s a really good reason why you should avoid certain foods while you’re wearing your braces: you might tear them off of your teeth! That means more time in the orthodontist chair, more time wearing braces, and more money spent by your parents (they won’t be happy.) In summary, here’s what you shouldn’t eat, courtesy of www.webster-ortho.com!
Think of braces as a type of diet. And honestly, you’re not missing much by cutting out candy and sodas! Braces might actually make you feel and look healthier on top of the amazing smile that they’re going to give you!
