How to Brush Your Teeth While Wearing Braces
A certain amount of pain can be expected with braces as the teeth shift into place and initially a minor amount of tooth sensitivity, gum and jaw pain in some cases. Some toothaches however aren’t the result of orthodontic treatment and it’s important that they’re addressed.
Usually, the main cause of toothache with orthodontic treatment is that the braces were recently adjusted and the resulting movement of the teeth.
What Soft Foods Can You Eat While in Braces?
Becoming accustomed to life with braces means, among other things, understanding what you can and can’t eat. You’ll need to adjust some of your eating habits, staying away from hard, sticky foods. Biting into hard or chewy, sticky foods can end up breaking wires and brackets, which, besides being painful, can end up prolonging treatment. The good news is that the answer to the question “What soft foods can you eat while in braces?” is anything that tastes good to you.
