I know this is not hopscotch related, but I'm getting braces tmr and I don't know what to expect. Does anyone have any advice on what to eat on the first few days and how to relieve the soreness? One last thing; I just came up with a potential idea of creating a dentist game on hopscotch. Any feedback?
I have braces! :3
It would be best to not eat sticky things, like caramel. It's best not to eat popcorn, either. :0
I eat them once in a while shh
You can eat most things, though! :3
As said by @CreativeCoder, soft things are great to eat until you get used to it. :3
There's also wax, that helps relieve the soreness. The orthodontist gave it to me when I got braces, they'll probably give it to you, too. :3
That's a great idea for a game! :D
Kind of like those Toca Boca games, right? :3
I have no idea for what to do with braces...
Maybe give progress updates on the project? :D
Thank for the advice, and yeah kinda like a toca boca game!
I was thinking of turning it into a collab maybe
You're welcome! :3
Great! I can't wait to see it. c:
I'm actually gonna get braces next year, so thats great advice for later on...
I had braces!c:
I'm not gonna tell you what they were like because that will probably terrify you XD
Most orthodontics are different, mine let me eat sugar free gum and popcorn, but idk. That dentist game sounds really cool! I can help with it if you want. c: Good luck! :D
if it is a collab, can i be in it?
I suggest you eat soft stuff until you get used to it (or maybe the beginning of my braces experience was just bad idk) because they can get really sore.
Good luck on your project! Maybe you can have different tasks to do (checkup, orthodontist, etc.)
I got braces in February!
I don't know if this is the same for everyone, because my parents expected me to react to them totally different than I did, but mine weren't that sore when I got them.
I'd agree with what Maltese said, don't eat stuff that's too sticky. You'll get used to how the braces feel after a day or two.
OFF TOPIC: how do you add "yes, i am a wizard" in ur username?
Thank you! :3
Just sharing info for a soon-fellow-brace-wearer XD
A mod changed mine, but they don't do requests. Remember you can ask somewhere like Talk to a Hopscotcher.
Jelly and ice cream are great for the few day after but Smoothies, Soft Fruit and Soup are the healthy options.
I know this because I had braces
Also If you need it have medication to relieve the pain if it's two sore
After a while you will be able to eat most things
My sister had braces.
- If you love popcorn, try some pop chips instead!
- Don't eat anything to sticky.
- Don't bite on lolipops
i won't ever know what it feels like to have braces I never need them not to brag
I dunno how it's like to have braces, so I can't help u ;-;
I have braces! :DD
It feels really weird for a long time after you first get them on, but they're really easy to get used to once they stop hurting. I recommend doing stuff, lots of it, on your first day. Just do whatever so you can take your mind off your teeth. Also, if you're comfortable with it and your parents allow it, you could take pain reliever for the first day or so. I recommend, if you take pain reliever, to take it before you go to sleep so you won't wake up at three in the morning with a terrible toothache! (Happened to me XD)
I (the boy) may get braces because I have a small mouth. :D
That is so funny! I am getting them on Monday...XD. Don't be worried, what type are you getting
I was about to make a topic like this
