What Can I Eat With My Braces On Thanksgiving?

by pedodonticspc on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 3:12 AM

When you have your braces, avoiding certain foods is a necessity to make sure that your braces don’t get damaged and your time wearing them gets longer. Unfortunately, things can get especially difficult during the holiday season since you typically end up surrounding by more delectable food than your stomach can handle, despite wanting to eat or at least try everything. While you already made it through the candy gauntlet that is Halloween with braces unscathed and tooth decay in check (we hope), now you’re on to your next challenge: Thanksgiving.

The good news is that your local orthodontic team here at Pedodontics P.C. have put together a guide going over what you can eat safely, and what you should avoid if you want to make it through Thanksgiving without a broken bracket or bent archwire that you need to worry about.
