You can still enjoy your meals and eat lots of delicious foods while straightening your teeth, but there are some foods that you should avoid completely. For a hassle-free dining experience, simply remove your aligners and brush and floss your teeth after eating. Foods that are nutritionally good for your teeth contain calcium, such as milk and cheese, meat, green vegetables, chicken and nuts. These foods don't stimulate bacteria growth and are very good for your teeth when you eat them. Invisalign prevents discoloration problems, while allowing you to avoid very complicated oral hygiene.
If you're thinking about straightening your teeth, but you're still worried about how the process might affect your daily diet, you can benefit from using transparent, removable aligners. Learn what foods you can enjoy and which to avoid when straightening your teeth with braces by calling Orthodontic Alliances at 219-809-6584 and scheduling a consultation with us. Straightening your teeth is a worthwhile decision that can have lasting positive effects on your overall quality of life. Teeth need calcium to stay strong and maintain their enamel coating, so it's important to make sure you're eating the right foods to help the process along. Sticky candy, corn cobs, or anything else you want can be enjoyed without worry when you use removable dental aligners for your orthodontic treatment.
