Caring for your Braces
Congratulations and welcome to the Smile Doctors family! Now that you have your braces, it is essential for you to know how to properly take care of your braces throughout your entire orthodontic journey.
Eating with Braces
For the first day or so your teeth will be adjusting to your new braces, so try to stick to soft foods – no tough meats, hard breads or raw vegetables. Try to get in the habit of cutting your food into tiny pieces, and you will find that with braces, eating is easy.
Not to worry, you’ll soon be munching on popcorn and snacking on your favorite potato chips again! But, before that, you will need to take extra care to stay away from any foods that could damage or break your new appliances.
