Foods That Are Appealing But Dangerous
A careful orthodontic patient can probably eat almost any food and do no damage to his or her braces. However, these types of food may cause trouble, as may other foods. Use common sense, or if you are in doubt, ask us about a particular food you enjoy eating.
HARD FOODS may do damage by bending wires, loosening cement under the bands or breaking the little brackets and tubes which are attached.
STICKY AND/OR CHEWY FOODS damages braces by bending wires and pulling cement loose.
FOOD HIGH IN SUGAR CONTENT should be avoided whenever possible. If you eat any of them, brush your teeth immediately. If it's not convenient to brush, always rinse your mouth with clear water after eating very sweet food such as cake or pie.
MAYBE - WITH EXTREME CARE!
