You may need to make a few changes in your day-to-day life after you begin wearing braces. Making these small adjustments to your habits will help keep your braces intact and functioning properly so that your treatment can stay on track. While some of these adjustments are frustrating, all of them are temporary. Braces are an investment in your smile, and you can return to regular habits following your treatment.
Possibly. We recommend that you avoid eating foods that could damage your braces, such as chewy foods, crunchy and hard foods, sticky foods, and foods that you need to bite into to eat.
Taking good care of your braces is key to keeping your smile progressing as planned. If your braces or other appliances are broken or damaged, that will slow your treatment down, causing you to spend more time wearing your braces and requiring you to visit our office more frequently for repairs and adjustments.
