Stock Your Fridge With Scottsdale AZ, Orthodontist

Stock Your Fridge With Scottsdale A Z OrthodontistCongratulations on your new braces! Amidst all the excitement, adjustments, and introduction to your new smile-enhancing equipment, you may have forgotten to ask one very important question: what can you eat? Here are some tips for stocking an orthodontic-friendly fridge that will thrill your taste buds and keep your Scottsdale, AZ, orthodontist happy, too.

Fresh Fruit

Fruit is not only healthy, it’s also easy to take on the road for a quick snack between classes or before practice. Grab some bananas, grapes, melons, berries, peaches, oranges, and pears.

Dairy

Cheese and yogurt are soft and delicious. Combine some goat cheese and crackers and you have a tasty snack. Toss some yogurt and fruit in a blender and you have a protein-rich breakfast ideal for those days when your teeth may be a little more tender.

Soft Side Dishes

When you want to whip up a soft side dish the whole family will love, reach for mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, applesauce, or steamed veggies.

Comfort Food Classics

Your Scottsdale, AZ, orthodontist might recommend skipping some of your favorite junk food items while you work on perfecting your smile, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a few classic examples of comfort food. Pasta dishes such as ravioli and spaghetti are perfect, as are chicken noodle soup, chicken and dumplings, beef stew, cheesy scrambled eggs, pancakes, tuna salad, and peanut butter and jelly.

Dessert

Treat yourself to pudding, ice cream, milkshakes, Jello, popsicles, or cake, just make sure you brush your teeth when you’re done.

Food to Avoid While You’ve Got Braces

Knowing what you can eat is the fun part – knowing what you can’t eat is essential to a comfortable and problem-free orthodontic experience.

  • Hard Foods: Crusty rolls or baguettes, bagels, chips, croutons, pizza crust, apples, corn on the cob, and raw vegetables such as carrots and celery can all displace or damage your brackets and wires.
  • Sticky Foods: Unless you want make an extra visit to your friendly neighborhood Scottsdale orthodontics office to get help cleaning out your candy-covered brackets, avoid sticky snack foods like gum, tootsie rolls, licorice, caramel, taffy, and jelly beans, as well as things like tortilla chips and pretzels that tend to mush up and adhere to braces.
  • Tough Foods: A nice, juicy steak can be appetizing, but chewing it – or any other less-than-tender meat such as beef jerky or pepperoni sticks – may pull on your hardware or bother newly adjusted teeth.
