Enjoy the Flavor of Almonds

To avoid breaking wires or brackets while wearing braces, you cannot eat hard foods such as nuts. However, it is still possible to enjoy gluten-free amaretti biscuits each day to enjoy the delicious taste of almonds. Gluten-free amaretti biscuits are made with almond flour instead of grain-based flour, leading to a food that has a mild nutty flavor. These biscuits are slightly crunchy on the outside but chewy on the inside, and your orthodontist highly recommends this food as a tasty treat. It is also possible to add other ingredients to this gluten-free biscuit to have a variety of desserts and snacks.

Learn How to Bake Sweet Treats

If you are a parent of a teenager who must wear plastic Invisalign aligners, then they are probably worried that flavorful treats are off-limits, but with the right recipes, they can still eat sweet foods such as biscuits that are coated with sugar. Your orthodontist can provide an assortment of recipes that are acceptable to eat while undergoing orthodontic treatment. For patients with a gluten allergy, learning how to cook is essential in order to have baked goods that are safe to eat.
