Living with braces is a different sort of experience. You've probably never had to consider what goes into your mouth beyond its nutritional value.
Now you'll need to care for your teeth in other ways beyond dental health. Avoid sticky, crunchy or chewy foods like tough meat, taffy candies and popcorn. These can be abrasive for the wires and studs on your teeth.
Instead, learn to enjoy softer foods, white meat, ice cream and yogurt. This will require some work on your part, but it will be worth it to keep on schedule.
