What to eat with braces
During those first few days of treatment when your teeth are a little tender, soft foods are your best option. Here are some yummy ideas for you to serve up at breakfast, lunch and dinner:
- Smoothies (just be careful of berry seeds as these can get stuck in your teeth)
- Scrambled eggs
- Macaroni cheese
- Baked beans
While wearing braces, make sure you don’t eat hard or crunchy foods, such as pizza crusts, or bite into hard foods, such as carrots, apples and corn cobs. You can still enjoy all your favourite foods, but just make sure you put the health of your teeth first. Our team can advise you on the best types of food to eat while having orthodontic treatment.
