Your Trusted Denver Dentist Can Help You Cope With Pain from New Braces

"For many, braces are an awkward memory from middle school or high school. Although orthodontic R&D strive to make current teeth straightening methods as less painful as possible, adults who opt to get braces might be surprised to encounter one inconvenience—eating can be like pulling teeth. The discomfort is usually the worst during the first week (or every after adjustment), as the teeth and mouth adapt to the braces. Fortunately, a trusted Denver dentist, such as those from the Cody Dental Group, may recommend several things you can do to make eating more comfortable during this time. For example, you can blend your fruits into smoothies, and cook vegetables first to soften them. Since peanuts and almonds will be painful to chew, you can get by with peanut and almond butter for now."
