Eating proper foods and minimizing sugar intake are essential during orthodontic treatment. Your braces are precise appliances that can be damaged by eating or chewing hard or sticky foods. Eating certain foods will loosen braces, but you may not discover the problem until hours or days later. Loose bands, detached brackets and bent wires can increase treatment time and may result in additional treatment fees.
The No-No List
Just remember; always use common sense when choosing foods to put in your mouth. If it’s hard, sticky, or feels like it may aggravate your orthodontic work, the best bet is to simply avoid it and eat something else!
