Top Foods to Eat and Avoid with Braces from EK Dental Surgery

Braces can definitely bring about a lot of changes!

Not only will you look a little different, but you may also find that your teeth don’t touch the same way as they did before, affecting the way you chew.

Although many patients find they’re able to eat most foods within one month of receiving their braces, certain food restrictions will continue throughout your orthodontic treatment.

Here’s a quick list of foods that are good for braces and foods that your braces might hate for chewing.
