Now that the summer season is officially underway, Simply Orthodontics has some good news for those who wear braces or are just about to get them put on: There’s no need to call off the barbeques!


Figuring out just what exactly you can or can’t eat during this time of year can be tricky for those who are in the early stages of orthodontic treatment. Luckily, Jonna LaSalle, the Office Manager at Simply Orthodontics’ Dayville, CT, location, was able to give us some tips for when you’re firing up the grill.


“For the most part, cookouts are pretty easy. You can have hamburgers, hotdogs, and watermelons. You can eat all that stuff,” said LaSalle, who has over 15 years of experience as an orthodontics assistant.


LaSalle went on to say that you can even have steak, as long as it’s cut up into small pieces and chewed toward the back of your mouth. Corn on the cob, however, can be a bit trickier.


“Try to stay away from corn on the cob,” LaSalle said. “The brackets can fall off because you’re biting into the hard cob, so you might want to cut the corn off before you eat it.”


LaSalle also cautioned against certain types of candy.


“Sometimes there’s a lot of sticky candies out there that kids like to eat. Stay away from those,” LaSalle said. “Try eating popsicles or push-up pops.”


While sticky candies may be tempting, just remember that every time you damage a bracket you are potentially extending your total treatment time by up to a month.


“If a bracket gets broken they will have to come back and get them fixed,” LaSalle said. “Every time a bracket breaks it sets them back in treatment a little bit.”


LaSalle also noted that there’s nothing wrong with summertime fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew. However, if you’re going to eat an apple a day, make sure you cut it up first. Of course there’s one rule that always applies to those in orthodontics treatment no matter what the season: Don’t forget to brush your teeth.


“You always want to brush your teeth,” LaSalle said. “Whatever you do, whatever you eat, just make sure you brush your teeth after.”

  • “I just wanted to take the time to give some praise to this office and all the staff. My daughter got braces today and everything went great. The staff and all the doctors are very friendly and helpful. My daughter was a little bit nervous about getting her braces and the staff made her feel so comfortable. A+'s in my book.”

  • I like the service we receive during my son's appointments. I love the fact that when we are early, 99% of the time we are taken early. Most appointments are very quick. This last appointment was bitter sweet. Usually his Dad brings him to his appointments but he had passed away three weeks previous. I was going to mention it while we were there but they had already known and everyone made a point to extent their condolences to my son. It was very thoughtful and I appreciated it very much. Thank you!
