FOODS TO AVOID WITH BRACES

Having crooked can be annoying; not only does it alter the jaw structure, but it also lowers our confidence. Many doctors suggest dental braces to straighten crooked teeth; it helps align the lower jaw with the upper jaw, improving the smile’s aesthetics. It is excellent for our self-confidence too. But dental braces can be a little irritating, and you have to be very careful about anything you put into your mouth.

With modern technology, braces have become sturdier and resilient; however, if you are not careful enough with it, you might end up damaging it badly. Eating food is one of the necessities for life, but sometimes specific foods can cause damage to the components of the braces, like the wire, the rubber bands or the bracket of the braces.

So it is vital to know what type of food to avoid to keep the braces intact. After getting braces, the first thing that comes into our mind is what kind of food can we eat? Are we allowed to have our favourite cake or candy? Can we continue eating pizza every weekend?. Or is chewing gum now off limits? Other numerous questions come into our minds after getting braces.

Well, the good news is that you do not have to continue with a liquid-only diet and can enjoy a variety of delicious solid food. But the bad news is there is some food that you need to avoid.

 

Food that needs to be avoided

 

  1. Candy: Hard candies like candy canes and lollipops can cause your brackets to lose, which would be a huge inconvenience for your treatment, and you have to get your brackets tightened multiple times. So try to avoid hard candies at any cost.

 

  1. Chewing gum: Gums can be extremely chewy and sticky; if you chew gum while wearing braces, then the chances are that you end up sticking the gum in the brackets and the wires of the braces. It can loosen the frame easily.

 

  1. Nuts and potato chips: Nuts, potato chips, crunchy veggie, etc., are crunchy and can break the bracket off the tooth and bend the archwires, so it would be wiser not to eat them with braces.

 

  1. Hard food: Hard food like beef jerky, corn on the cab or pizza crust should be avoided with the braces on as it can break the bracket pretty quickly, and as a result, you have to go to the dentist again to get it fixed.

It’s not only about avoiding food; you also have to give up some bad habits that you might have to keep your braces safe.

  • You cannot continue chewing pen or pencil.
  • Stop biting your nails.
  • You cannot continue with toothpicks; if there is something on your teeth, use dental floss.

Now that we are done talking about things that you cannot eat, here is a list of things you can eat with your braces on.

  • Soups
  • Fruits
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Ice cream
  • Boneless meat
  • Sandwiches

 

Conclusion

So these are the few things that you should avoid if you have braces on; it may sound painful, but remember beauty is pain, and pain is gain. So if you are getting dental braces in Mumbaiyou should be careful about your food choices.

    A very well-written blog. The foods mentioned above can loosen the braces and will require frequent dental visits.

As someone who has struggled with juvenile periodontitis since the age of 16, I've worked with dentists around the world, and it was refreshing to find a dentist that I was able to work with directly from beginning to end. Dr. Arora was highly professional, thoughtful, and empathetic throughout the process. I had already started the process and had implants in place, and she helped me with six abutments and a total of 26 crowns. I reached out a few weeks before my trip, and she responded immediately. She took the time to talk through my history, and I could speak with her directly, not one of her assistants. She was very transparent and empathetic to my situation. She addressed my concerns about fees and followed through by not making it about money right when I showed up at her office. She paid attention to every detail and was thorough and getting the job done, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to get some solid work done, whether it be implants or cosmetic work.

Visited for dental facial pain issue, this was a second opinion i needed but the doctor was giving ambiguous answers & was not open to explaining in detail what would be best treatment. Again the answers were confusing and doc was not sure if the treatment would work or not. After having consulted a few docs before i was certain that this condition is not a rare one and facial pain is very common today. Again i was to visit doctor urmi but another dentist in her place consulted me which was surprising as i had no prior knowledge of this. I would appreciate if the doctor showed more enpathy towards the patient.

Visited for dental implants Was looking for a good dental clinic in mumbai , found Dr Ritika online and was quite impressed with her credentials and the reviews on google I was struggling with a old broken bridge with missing teeth . On Consultation with Dr Ritika suggested me immediate dental implants. I had 3 teeth extracted and 3 dental implants place on the same day . The procedure was painless though there was some nagging discomfort for a few days later which is quite normal when you have so much dental work done in one sitting After 4 months the dental implants were restored with 4 ceramic crowns. I happy to be back to enjoying my food. Modern clinic , very professional , affordable and the overall experience at Aesthetic smiles dental clinic is good especially for nervous patients like me who tend to neglect dental treatment Highly recommended

Last year in the month of December I have visited her and she advised me to remove my tooth and then do an implant and I had the most traumatic dental extraction experience, still I kept myself calm thinking that she is well known and experienced doctor and it’s been 5 to 6 months she did not followed up and avoid to reply to my text about the implant, Today i have visited another dentist to my wildest dream, I came to know that she has destroyed my entire jaw bone in the extraction process and no implant is possible now. It’s all big name and low fame, terrible diagnosis and treatment. Please be careful.

I am from the US and was living in Africa when I needed some implants done. My global travel service recommended Dr. Ritika and my experience with her was fantastic! After I moved back to the States, I returned to India specifically to have her do more dental work for me. if not for Covid, I would return to India to finish the implant work she started. Both my dentist and oral surgeon here have commented on the high quality of work I received from her. Her clinic is exceptionally clean and her staff are very nice. Dr. Ritika was also very attentive to my travel needs and even sent cars to pick me up for my appointments. Plus, It costs me less to take a 2-week vacation AND get multiple implants than to get just 1 implant on the US! I highly recommend her, and look forward to when I can go back to visit enchanting India.
