The Little Depot Diner

Yes, small but cozy and has great food. If you are looking for a delicious breakfast, this is the place to be. At “The Little Depot Diner,” you will enjoy your best “Rock n’ Roll” bands and artists in a breakfast named after them. The “Ozzy’s All Aboard” is a must. Also, “The Chuck Wagon” with three eggs, three portions of bacon, three sausages, and a giant pancake, served with homefries or beans, is the best way to start a day. However, the Traditional Benedict Eggs with ham steaks topped with two poached eggs and the Hollandaise sauce will make you feel on top of the world.

Now that you have a reasonably good list of restaurants, you can enjoy some delicious dishes in Peabody. Now it’s time to know the kinds of food you can eat using braces.

The Best Diet to Eat With Braces

Having braces doesn´t have to be torture, especially when it relates to eating the food you love. Braces don´t hurt. However, you might feel a little discomfort and sensitivity on the first days after your appointments. So during the first two to three days, the recommendation is to eat easy-to-chew food, like pasta, soft vegetables, moist desserts, and other soft-textured foods.

After a few days, the discomfort and pressure on your jaw will ease, and you will be able to resume eating the food you love at the fabulous restaurants in Peabody.

Foods You Can’t Eat With Braces

There are types of food you must avoid during your orthodontic treatment. However, you shouldn’t worry much, the list is not extensive, and we are sure you will survive without them. First, we include a shortlist of foods to avoid after getting your braces on and sometimes after an adjustment visit. The reason is that they might cause sensitivity and discomfort:

  • Meat (especially thicker cuts)
  • Thick bread (especially if it is hard like baguette bread)
  • Ice cream (as it might increase tooth sensitivity)
  • Toasted bread.

There are foods you definitely shouldn’t eat during your orthodontic treatment:

  • Any type of nuts
  • Bubble gum
  • Vegetables (especially raw and crunchy like carrots)
  • Fruits (pears, apples, peaches)
  • Chips
  • Popcorn
  • Hard Tacos
  • Pretzels

A dentist’s recommendation is to limit your sugary food intake. However, while having braces, the advice is to avoid sugar to the most possible. Sugar causes plaque to form. In addition, having good oral hygiene turns complicated during your orthodontic treatment, and plaque accumulation might cause tooth decay.

Practicing good oral habits will help you through your orthodontic treatment. Your dentist will help you with cleaning and routine checkouts. Having braces should not be a hassle. So, feel free to eat at your favorite Peabody restaurant with just a little extra care.
