I received my first treatment on Feb 7th.
My uppers were put on. The first couple of weeks were horrible. What a pain in the mouth!
A few pounds of wax later, and I'm doing ok. Until...

Yesterday the bottoms put on. :(
The doc also put something called build up on a few of my bottom teeth so my bite doesn't close.

What I would really like to know....
What are we supposed to be able to eat?
I mean c'mon baby food, soup and smoothies..there has got be better ideas...
I would like to know, what do you eat?
Please help.

I ate everything I did before I got my braces on. I was just carful not to bend the wire. I had to learn how to chew after my braces were put on. I had bite ramps on the back of my upper incisors.

Ice cream and pudding! You can probably manage to eat most soft foods like pasta... It will get better with time If you chew carefully you can eat most foods.
