“I cannot say enough good things about Stieper and Brust! The office atmosphere is vibrant and upbeat, unlike any other dentist or doctor office I've been to. Between the friendly and knowledgeable staff and their high level of technology, you can rest assured that you are in good hands. Both Dr. Stieper and Dr. Brust are personable and amazing at what they do. I always leave their office feeling confident and better about my smile. My Invisalign treatment through their office has been affordable, convenient and a fun process to watch my teeth shift so quickly! I was nervous to start Invisalign at first but as I near the end of my treatment, I am so happy I made the decision to follow through with it and especially at Stieper & Brust Orthodontics!” – Lindsey C.

Advice from Dr. Stieper About Braces-Friendly Sweet Treats

Looking for sweet treats you can have while you're undergoing orthodontic treatment?

Dr. Brad Stieper says, "We want everyone to still enjoy things they love, especially with the summer months coming up! You can still enjoy camping and cookouts, just take the corn off the cob first! Cut apples and carrots into pieces and use your back teeth to chew.

When all else fails, try one of my favorite smoothie recipes, no chewing required."



Strawberry Banana Smoothie 
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries 
  • 1 fresh banana, peeled 
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 1 cup ice 
  • 1 tablespoon honey, if you like it a little sweeter 

Blend all ingredients until smooth and enjoy!

Ask Your Orthodontist about Your Eating Habits 


Still not sure what you should be avoiding when you have braces or Invisalign? The key as with most things is to enjoy in moderation. Eating the wrong thing can cause broken brackets, which can cause unnecessary appointments and an added cost for braces, and nobody wants that! Ask your orthodontist for more suggestions! You might realize you can enjoy more salty, sweet, crunchy foods than you originally thought!

Having Braces Doesn't Mean Giving Up Fun Foods!

Between school, sports practices, extracurricular activities, homework, and hanging out with friends and family, teens tend to have a lot on their plates.

They need healthy (and tasty) meals and snacks to keep them going. When you throw braces into the mix, weekly menus have to change a little bit. But don’t let that discourage you! There are plenty of braces-friendly substitutes for most of teens’ favorite foods.



At Stieper & Brust Orthodontics, we know it can be a little discouraging to have to avoid certain foods while you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. But don’t worry! There are lots of fun foods you can have with braces on.
