What You Can Eat With Braces and What You Should Avoid

Are you or a loved one planning to get braces in the near future? It can be overwhelming at first, determining which foods are safe to eat with braces and which foods should be avoided. Unfortunately, some of your favorite foods may be on the “do not eat” list, and for the safety of your braces and your treatment plan, we recommend holding off on eating those foods while you are wearing your braces. There are also foods that we suggest having on hand when you get your braces for the first time or the first few days after an adjustment when your teeth and gums may be a little tender.

Have you ever been embarrassed by a misaligned smile or crooked teeth? If you’re thinking about braces, does a teenager with a mouth of metal brackets and wire come to mind?

Straighter Teeth At Any Age

Do you think you missed the boat on having straighter teeth or a better aligned smile now that you are an adult? When you think of braces do you only think of teenagers wearing a mouth full of metal? We want you to know that even as an adult, you can improve the alignment of your teeth and bite using orthodontics. What’s more, you also have options other than metal for braces, including ceramic and clear.

The Case For Early Orthodontic Treatment

As your child’s teeth start to come in, you may notice overcrowded or crooked teeth or that they have an over or underbite. Don’t assume you can wait until they are in their early teens to see an orthodontist. By 7 years old, recommend your child be seen if they are showing signs of orthodontic issues. The chances of correcting overcrowding or a misaligned bite are greater (and treatment is less costly) when orthodontic treatments begin at a younger age.
