Cold foods and drink. It’s the warmth in your mouth that makes the wires return to their original shape and subsequently move your teeth.
Hope you like ice cream!

I had braces and the one thing you should do is distract yourself, watch your favourite show and don't eat anything for 24 hours. Don't clench your jaws, braces is pain is around a 6/10 its continuous which is what makes it dangerous but you can distract yourself from it.

Yeah, the first week is hard, the pain will gradually decrease. I got my braces 13 days ago. Get some dental wax from the orthodontics (I'm going to travel 30 mins for that today) because my braces are rubbing against two mouth ulcers and it's really painful for me.
