A careful orthodontic patient can probably eat almost any food and do no damage to his or her appliance. However, the following three types of food may cause trouble, as may other foods. Use common sense, or if you are in doubt, ask us aout some food you enjoy eating.
HARD FOODS can break or damage wires and brackets.
STICKY FOODS can get caught between brackets and wires and pull cement loose.
SUGARY FOODS cause tooth decay and related problems.
