Phoenix AZ Orthodontist Recommends These Braces-Friendly Foods

phoenix az orthodontist braces friendly foodsWhen braces become a part of your everyday life, there are certain regimens our Phoenix AZ orthodontist recommends to all of our patients. Brushing after every meal is one of them, along with avoiding certain foods, like corn on the cob and chewing gum. The goal is to get a healthy, straight smile at our Phoenix orthodontic office, and any food that’s hard or chewy runs the risk of loosening the wires on your braces and setting back any progress that’s been made.

Learn About Great Food for Braces with Help from Our Phoenix AZ Orthodontist

Although it’s important to heed professional advice and avoid certain foods, you might be surprised to learn all the foods that can help you achieve a healthy smile. Keep reading to learn more…

#1 – Fresh Pineapple

Fresh pineapple, without all the added sugars found in canned pineapple, is a sweet treat our Phoenix orthodontist suggests in place of sugary foods, like ice cream. Because pineapple contains many vitamins, like vitamin C, vitamin K, and bromelain, it assists in providing healthy gums and strengthening your teeth.

#2 – Watermelon

Watermelon is another fruit that can not only satisfy your sweet tooth, but also benefit your mouth by strengthening your teeth and restoring enamel. A ripe watermelon is soft, which makes it easy to eat, plus it contains phosphorus and vitamin C, which work together to improve your oral health. Our Phoenix AZ orthodontist suggests eating watermelon at room temperature, as cold temperatures can weaken the bonding on your braces.

#3 – Cooked Vegetables

Even though raw, crunchy vegetables can be detrimental to your braces, they’re still a vital part of any diet, with experts recommending at least three servings every day. Luckily, there are many ways to prepare vegetables in order to make them braces-friendly. Try steaming, boiling, or even roasting your vegetables in the oven. This will decrease their crunch while retaining the vitamins and nutrients needed for a balanced diet and healthy teeth.
