Answer #10

you can’t eat toffy and taffy

Answer #11

braces hurt… it doesn’t really matter what you eat as long as you’re careful like me I didn’t change my eating habits… yah at first all I ate was mashed patios, a few weeks later I was chewing SHUGAR FREE (!!!) gum… popcorn is kinda hard but if you floss good and if you have a water pick it helps! buy a water pick anyways it helps even if you don’t have braces

Answer #12

ummm well a lot of things. sugarless gum, chewy candy with lots of sugar because it rots easier in your teeeth. ummm chewing into hard fruits like apples and stuff because the brackets can fall off. popcorn gets stuck everywhere and you cant eat corn on the cob.

when you first get them its better 2 eat soft fooods because they heart like hell. soda like coke

nut those are just kinda like be careful when you eat them. I dont eat the apples or the corn on the cob because that acually scares me but all the junk food I cant resist. basically nobody follows the rules

Answer #13

I just got pallet expanders today and they hurt really really bad!!! things to saty away from are all sweets, hard candy, taffy, things of that sort…my othrodontist said you can still have resses cups… you really shouldn’t eat popsorn either…not supposed to drink pop…stay away from all hard foods, such as hard pretzels, apples, baby carrots, regualr carrots, corn on the cob, but if you cut these fooda into very small pieces and floss afterwards, you should be fine. Make sure you floss after eating anythins that could get stuck, if you can’t brush after every meal, try and rinse out your mouth, just remember braces and expanders and stuff really suck, but you will have perfect teeth afterwards!

Answer #14

I gt braces yesterday. 2 days before christmas !!! I am in sooo much pain :O

Answer #15

when I had braces I was told a load of things I shouldnt have but I did…like biting into apples, pizza crusts e.t.c but I did and it was fne, I never had gum in all that time though…its impossible lol

Answer #16

Popcorn, pizza crust, hard fruits, sticky candy, citrus, all of that can be okay depending on how you eat it. Popcorn just gets stuck in there so its a pain to get it out, pizza crust is fine, I suggest you cut hard fruits, some gum is okay, like extra or 5, they aren’t like bubble gum that gets stuck, and sticky candy is okay as long as you dont smear it all over, citrus, let me explain, citrus is fine but my friend said that she broke a bracket while pulling it out of her teeth, Corn on the cob…I suggest you cut it off the cob even though I love it on the cob,hard taco shells are nothing to be afraid of if you are a taco fanatic then eat away I have top braces, and I am getting my bottom today! so EAT UP!
