• Patient question: What can I eat with braces?

    January 25th, 2013

    We love when patients ask us this question! Now that you’re wearing braces, it’s just as important to maintain a good oral hygiene regimen as you did before your orthodontic treatment began. The first few days in braces are going to be more difficult to eat than normal. There will be a slight discomfort when you chew your food when you first get your braces on, so the act of chewing will make it slightly more painful.

    Here are a few soft foods that do not require you to do much chewing and are easy to chew on when your teeth are sore:

    Ice cream, yogurt, pudding, cool soups, Jell-O, scrambled eggs, cream of wheat, baked potatoes, soft cooked pasta, soup, bananas, cottage cheese, smoothies, macaroni and cheese, pancakes, soft cheeses, and milk are all foods you can eat safely without having to worry about pain or breaking your brackets.

    Be sure to always check with us if you have questions about a particular food item by either giving us a call at 513-772-6500 or asking us on Facebook!
