Can I eat pizza with braces?
You can still eat pizza when you have braces, but it all comes down to the type of pizza. The best way to go is soft-crust pizza. Tougher crusts or thin crusts can damage your braces and get stuck between the wires, brackets and your teeth. You could even have fun making your own pizza to suit your orthodontics.
Can I bite into a burger with braces?
A: Yes, you can eat a burger AND sushi with braces. Remember to chew carefully. You can also cut your food into bite size pieces. A few days after getting your braces on or after an adjustment, you may feel sensitivity or soreness in your teeth.
Can I eat a cheeseburger with braces?
Please don’t eat popcorn, nuts, and seeds either, as the pieces can get stuck in your appliances or break them. You can still eat things like ice cream, brownies, cookies, cake, French fries, burger, hot dogs, and pizza (just avoid the crust), no problem.
Can I eat chips with braces?
Can I eat chips with braces? Yes, you just need to select the right ones. Pringles, “baked” chips and Cheeto Puffs/Fries are great braces options for chips. Just try to remember to eat ONE CHIP AT A TIME, so that you don’t accidentally break a bracket.
Why is it so hard to eat with braces?
It’s not uncommon for braces to feel uncomfortable after having them first placed or tightened. This discomfort will subside, but it can make eating and chewing difficult at first. Braces work by applying pressure to align the teeth, which can cause temporary oral pain.
How long do braces hurt for?
Mild pain or discomfort is a normal side effect of wearing braces. But you should only feel the discomfort immediately after your orthodontist places or adjusts your braces or wires. The discomfort typically disappears within four days, and braces pain rarely lasts longer than a week.
Can I brush my teeth hard with braces?
Make sure to brush the tops, bottoms, and sides of the brackets as well as the surfaces. Try not to brush too hard, as this may accidentally damage your orthodontic appliances. A soft-bristled toothbrush is more than enough to get the job done.
