There are many foods that are known to be bad for your teeth, whether you were wearing braces or not. However, as suggested in the title, pineapples are not one of them. Pineapples are one of many teeth friendly fruits that you can enjoy as much as you want without having to worry about damage to your teeth.
However, making a point of eating teeth friendly fruits will not do anything to correct misaligned teeth, such as teeth with gaps or that are crooked. You will need an orthodontist for that. If you see one, it is likely that your two options will be traditional metal braces and Invisalign. Your orthodontist will make a recommendation to you based on your specific situation. Typically, individuals who have severe misalignment of teeth will benefit more from traditional metal braces. Invisalign may be better for people who are more concerned with the cosmetic aspect of teeth straightening and do not have serious misalignment issues. Additionally, the invisible aligners are removable, and if you have these rather than traditional metal braces, there are no food restrictions, so you will be able to eat whatever you want whether it is as teeth friendly as pineapples or not.
The type of braces needed for each patient is determined after a thorough examination from an orthodontist in Centerville. For orthodontic treatment Fairborn residents trust, visit King Orthodontics where there are two orthodontists, including:
