Most of, if not all of us, have had to change our daily routine in some way or another due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have been slacking off with your smiles and oral hygiene while social distancing (which is understandable!), making smart food choices is one way to get back on track.
With braces, it is very important not to eat any crunchy foods, which can break the wires and cause painful complications. Although there are several delicious foods that you will not be able to consume with braces, there are plenty of yummy options that still exist. Besides, you can do some exploring and potentially find new foods that you like even more! Below are five braces-friendly foods that are safe to incorporate into your summer diet.
Of course, while you have braces, what you can eat safely will have some limitations. With all foods that you consume with braces, we recommend that you thoroughly brush and floss after you eat—especially when dealing with sugary or acidic foods. It is understandable that during this COVID pandemic, your oral hygiene habits may have slipped a little, but it’s still important to never damage your braces with hard, sticky, or chewy snacks. By choosing only delicious braces-friendly options, you can do your teeth a favor while serving your taste buds right!
