Hey, my daughter started wearing braces last week. She refuses to eat food and says that she has got tooth pain. She has become very lean because of this. When I spoke to my dentist about this, he asked me not to give her crunchy and hard foods. I was searching on the internet for the diet pattern to be followed after having braces and came across a blog ( http://www.shorttermbraces.com/blog/teeth-braces/can-you-eat-with-short-term-braces-on/ ) which lists out the food to be avoided while wearing braces. The blog says that the following food must be avoided after having braces: * sugar and sticky food * dried fruit * chewy food and sweets * crunchy or hard food * stringy food Is there any other food that you would like to add to the list?
