I need to EAT! How do I do that with braces?

So, we know word gets around. Yes, there are some limitations to your diet while you are in treatment with braces. BUT, really, it’s not that much! AND, if you are a candidate for clear aligners like Invisalign or 3M Clarity Aligners, there are even fewer restrictions. We’ll go over the complete list of what you can and cannot eat while wearing braces, but basically avoid anything hard, sticky or chewy, and you’re all good. Remember, keep the finish line in mind, and it’s all for the best. You’ll get there before you know it!
