Smoothie! A Braces-Friendly Recipe
Every person who is experiencing the wrath of braces knows how painful eating can be after getting an adjustment. This pain only lasts a day or two, but the movement of your teeth can be painful right at the beginning.
When you have braces, Dr. Angelakis will always remind you that you are to eat foods that won’t provide any pain and discomfort to your teeth. You are asked to avoid any crunchy, hard, sticky, and chewy substances that may brake your brackets and wires; failure to follow these will result in prolonging the treatment.
While all of these are true, people with braces still have to eat. Although eating can be painful or annoying, you must remember that not all foods are inclined to ruining your day. There are several recipes out there that are braces-friendly, so don’t fret and avoid the comforts that food gives. If you are fond of drinking healthy beverage, take a look at the recipe below!
