If you’re like me you grew up in the era of braces. Braces weren’t something to be embarrassed by, they were a rite of passage. You displayed those puppies every single time you switched your band color. From matching your favorite sports team, to the fun glow in the dark bands, that metal mouth was worn with pride. That is until a bracket rubbed your cheek raw, a wire popped or you ventured into the territory of forbidden foods.
Messy- These foods won’t damage your braces, but do a great job at getting stuck in your wires and brackets.
1. corn on the cob
3. white bread- no seriously, especially hot dog buns and super pretzels.
Sticky- Makes cleaning a big chore.
7. fruit snack
Crunchy- Your wires and brackets are no match for these foods.
11. hard candy
You may enjoy all these foods and more with Invisalign; just remove your aligners. Invisalign Teen provides a great alternative to traditional braces. The clear aligners do the straightening without all the wires and brackets. Eliminating the need to restrict your diet, emergency orhto visits, and the awkwardness and fear associated with playing sports and instruments.
It’s important to note not all orthodontists specialize in Invisalign. It might be a good idea to get a second opinion to ensure you are receiving all the important information to make an educated decision. Use the find a doctor feature to locate an Invisalign Teen/Invisalign orthodontist near you.
