CAN YOU EAT PIZZA WITH BRACES? Yes, of course! As long as you avoid tough crusts, as well as sticky and stringy toppings, and take small, careful bites, you will be able to enjoy it.
It might seem as if the main concern when it comes to braces is the cheese topping. However, this is not the case at all. Since the metal wires are made up of metal, it’s quite easy to imagine that the melted cheese will stick to them.
Although you may think cheese is a problem, in reality it isn’t the problem you might think it is. In contrast to sugary foods like caramel, it is not sticky in the same sense that sugary foods are sticky. If any bits of cheese are caught on the braces, you can usually get them out very easily by rubbing a small amount of toothpaste on them. The best way to get rid of it is to floss for just a few minutes a day and it will be gone before you know it.
That’s right, there isn’t anything to worry about when it comes to cheese. It’s the pizza crust that’s the problem.
There are two reasons for this. The first is that the crust can be chewy and hard – both qualities that can be extremely hard on braces. Often times the crust can be very hard to bite through, putting pressure on the wires, bands, brackets of the braces because it’s hard to bite through.
Although biting into a crust is unlikely to result in you losing a bracket, chewing hard on something that is tough is a different story. Your braces can be seriously damaged if you are experiencing that problem.
If you’re thinking about toppings for your pizza, the same principles apply to them as well. The wires, brackets, and bands of your brace can be adversely affected by those that are tough or chewy. In the case of overcooked pepperoni, for instance, it can become very difficult to keep your braces in place.
As you can see below it’s possible but there are certain hacks, like avoiding the crust and sticky toppings. We searched the web for more information about eating pizza with braces and found the following QUORA questions and answers.
