Choose Friendly Food to Protect Your Braces

When you begin to wear braces, an orthodontist will tell you that it is a good idea to avoid eating hard fresh fruit, but you can chop up fruit to make it easier to chew. Tooth friendly foods such as raisins or apples are important for your overall wellness, and you can consume these fruits by making a tasty salad. Apple-raisin salad is easy to make, and you can store it in a refrigerator for several days to have it ready for fast meals.

• Apples
• Raisins
• Yogurt
• Lemon juice
• Pepper
• Salt

Wash, core and chop the fresh apples for this recipe. Put the small apple pieces in a mixing bowl before adding raisins, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Stir these ingredients before adding the plain yogurt. You can serve apple-raisin salad right away or put it in a refrigerator to chill until lunch or dinner.

Remember to Brush Your Teeth

If you wear plastic aligners, then remove the devices to eat this tooth-friendly food. However, if you have traditional braces, then eat a small spoonful and chew carefully to enjoy the flavor without damaging the brackets or wires. This recipe offers essential minerals and vitamins in addition to fiber and antioxidants. Orthodontists recommend that patients brush their teeth at least twice each day to avoid having plaque buildup on their teeth. With proper oral hygiene each day, you are less likely to develop cavities, gingivitis or halitosis.
