Braces Friendly Snacks By Top Rated Asheville, NC Orthodontist | TS Orthodontics

Having braces is no picnic, but they shouldn’t keep you from eating snacks when you get home from school. As your friendly orthodontist in Asheville NC says, “Healthy snacks are part of living with braces.” Stocking up on braces-friendly snacks will keep your stomach from rumbling, and you won’t have to worry about extra visits to your Asheville NC orthodontist. Here is a list of great snack foods that are fine for eating with your Invisalign aligners.

Foods that will keep your braces healthy, and reduce your trips to your Asheville orthodontist include:

 

  • Soft fruits such as citrus fruits, bananas, peaches, blueberries and grapes
  • Soft raw vegetables such as cucumbers and peppers
  • Baked or roasted hard fruits such as apples and pears
  • Salad greens
  • Soft dairy foods such as yogurt, cottage cheese and string cheese
  • Roasted, grilled or steamed veggies with hummus
  • Fruit smoothies (which can also soothe sore gums after a visit to your Asheville orthodontist)
  • Hard boiled or deviled eggs
  • Thin corn, potato or veggie chips with salsa or dip
  • Soft crackers such as Goldfish or oyster crackers

 

For stone fruit such as mango or peaches, cut them into smaller pieces that don’t require a lot of chewing. That way you can still enjoy the fruit without any damage to your braces. You can also mix your favorite flavoring into plain yogurt or spread peanut butter and jam on soft bread. The main things to watch out for are foods that are hard to bite such as nuts or with a skin such as apples. Besides the issue of detaching a bracket, you may also irritate your gums or teeth which may be sensitive. If you are not sure, discuss foods when you visit your Asheville NC orthodontics office.
