I had an expander when i was younger, and I ate a lot... The only thing that changed for me is stringy food like spinach getting stuck, but you can simply pull it out. The other thing that bothered me is when i had to put the key in to open it up more. It was a little painful to chew right after loosening but it was bareable.

Well, it is very difficult, but here are some helpfull tips, (You get used to it after a while)

Cut up your food into smaller pieces then you normally would, so you dont have to chew as much. When you put the food inside your mouth, chew with only one side, and one side only, because if you keep going bakc and forth with the chewing on differant sides, it's easier for the food get stuck in your expander.

When the food is all chewed up, kinda push it back to the back of your mouth then swallow right away, yes it is going to be hard, but again, you will get used to it.

Wash it down with your drink :) Hope I helped somewhat.

What is a music expander?

An expander works in a similar way to a compressor, with a compressor you set the threshold and when the signal goes over this threshold the compressor starts to work. The signal over the threshold is attenuated (reduced) at the rate of the other parameter settings (ie. attack, ratio, release,etc.). An expander works in an opposite fashion, the threshold is set and any part of the signal dropping below this threshold will be affected by the expander and this level will be raised. The expander therefore like the compressor balances out the signal making it sound more professional.

What are the disadvantages of using a port expander?

A port expander is computer hardware that uses one port on a computer to connect more than one device. By using a port expander, it reduces the performance and speed more than if one just used discs. In some cases a SAS expander may be cheaper than more than one port. However, the more devices that have been connected, the less bandwidth there will be to use.


Can you have popcorn if you have your expander in?

It depends if you have braces on yet. I have an expander right now, but I have bottom braces. There's not much of a problem with the expander and popcorn, unless you get an unpopped kernel up there, which is pretty tricky to get out. As long as you're careful not to let that happen, and you're extra-careful if you have braces, then yes, you should be able to have popcorn.

What not to eat with a expander?

dont eat anything its all sucky just kiddingive had mine for two days and i can eat yogurt ice cream jello and pudding and some kinds of soup but after a while it will get easier to eatAre you dumb? You can eat anything, you just have to deal with the food getting stuck in your expander. Your teeth may hurt for a couple days and especially when you get it tightened. But you can eat anything you want. Besides popcorn and sticky things. And stuff like that. I've had my expander for about a month now. When my mom tightens it, it's just really tight and weird feeling. And now I have a gap in between my front 2 teeth. My front teeth hurt slightly but that's it. I would stay away from rice, it's really hard to get out. But there are these little brushes that you can use also. You can bend them and get the crap out. You can also suck it out, it sounds gross haha, but it works. So, yeah (:DO NOT eat spaghetti, many people have choked on it, but if u want it, just cut it into little itty bitty pieces, as if you were feeding a mouse.
