What can I eat with braces?

I got them put in about two days ago, and I haven't really eaten much of anything because I don't really know what I can eat. What can I properly eat? Thanks.

    Technically speaking, you could eat also everything with braces on. (popcorn, gum, candy, etc.) Ask your orthodontist about what you should and shouldn't eat and they will inform you. i have braces and i eat also everything but the food just gets caught onto your braces, but there is a chemical in your saliva that dissolves that food after a while. You just need to floss/brush your teeth well everyday. Brushing after each meal is advised

    I would recommend a machine called WaterPik.

    Don't eat very hard or chewy foods like gum and taffy

    When I had braces, when they would tighten them I would live on mashed potatoes and corn
