I binged on all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ the night before. Totally worth it now that I'm on braces. Gnawing off the beef short ribs... Well you get the picture ahha. Looking forward to chewing delicious food once these train tracks come off ;3

I've loved reading all these replies! I'm soon to be braced up and haven't yet decided what ill have as my last meal! I think I'm going to swing for Scampi and Chips! A good English classic. :-)

I'll miss popcorn thought I had It last night and as I could feel it getting stuck in my teeth I did sigh to myself and think this is never going to be possible with braces! Lol :-/

You should be able to eat scampi and chips ( and pretty much everything else) just as easily after braces, so don't worry.

You will have to avoid biting into hard foods like apples or carrots because this might break your brackets off. But you can still eat them by cutting them up first. Also very chewy things like toffees or Lion bars might distort your wires or break off brackets. But you should manage pretty much anything else if you are careful.

Some people experience soreness after having their braces fitted or adjusted and can only manage soft food for a while, but others don't have this problem.

My first meal after being braced was a pizza ( eaten with knife and for) and an apple ( cut into pieces).

I don't like popcorn so am not sure if that would be a problem.

I was a vegan for two years, then got braces, then started eating hamburgers.
I am so backwards sometimes.

I wondered how you were going with that! I was vegetarian for almost 4 years (I was already eating meat when I got braced though) and I cannot imagine eating what I used to back then with these things on!

I had steak for my final meal. Although I've found that I can eat most things as long as I cut them into small pieces and push them to the back. I can't bit anything and I'm struggling with chocolate as it tends to melt all over my braces.
