How to Eat with Braces
How you eat with braces is also very important. Dr. Brigham encourages patients with braces to chew their food slowly so that they don’t bite down too hard on anything. Another tip Dr. Brigham offers patients is to cut their food up into smaller pieces, especially apples, carrots, chewy bread, and spaghetti noodles. Moreover, biting using the side of your mouth is much easier.
