Eating With New Braces

At The Best Braces, we know that it can be a transition for patients who are wearing braces for the first time. The first few days are going to be an adjustment. Not only do you have to get used to having something on all of your teeth, but there is also the discomfort of the braces starting to do their job. We recommend planning ahead and having foods available that will be a comfort during this time of adjustment. These foods can also be handy after an adjustment to your braces when you may be feeling some discomfort for a few days. Here are some food suggestions for meals:

Preparing Your Child For Their First Orthodontic Experience

Similar to your child’s first time visiting the dentist, their first orthodontic appointment can be nerve-racking and the expectations may be somewhat unclear to a new patient.

While we recommend that children visit our office for their first visit starting approximately at the age of seven, we know that we have children of every age visiting us for the first time.
