What can I eat while I have an orthodontic device?

23 May 2019

Pedro recommends following a diet of soft foods for the first two weeks, during which the teeth are still tender from the fitting process. Soft foods will exert less pressure on your teeth, minimising any discomfort.

After the first two weeks, patients must be careful with how and what they eat so they don’t damage the braces. Hard foods can harm the braces, and sticky foods can loosen them from the teeth. Foods that push on the braces when you bite like raw carrots and apples must be cut into small pieces before being eaten.

If you have a removable device, it will need to be removed before eating.
