Life with Braces

Adjusting to life with braces may be a little awkward at first. Your teeth might be sensitive due to movement, however it does not take long before you are comfortable. Your orthodontists ask that you take special care of your teeth and braces. The brackets on your teeth can easily break, and if they do, your treatment can last longer than expected. To keep your braces in proper condition, we ask that you refrain from eating the following foods:

  • Gum
  • Beef Jerkey
  • Corn Chips
  • Nuts
  • Hard or Sticky Candy
  • Popcorn
  • Soft Drinks
  • Candy
  • Caramel
  • Celery
  • Whole Apples
  • Crisp Taco Shells

Our team at Orthodontic Associates of New England recommends avoiding these products because they may have the potential to cause problems with your orthodontic treatment. You will have plenty of time to eat these foods as soon as you are done with the treatment, and we appreciate your willingness to ensure a successful and productive orthodontic experience. If you have any questions please feel free to give us a call. We are here to help you in any way we can!
