What Foods to Avoid with Your Braces

Loose bands, poor oral hygiene, and a diet high in sugar can cause permanent damage to your teeth and gum tissues.

In general, you should avoid anything sticky, chewy, crunchy, or hard.


It's Up to You - After Treatment Care

Dear Patient,

Congratulations! You are now at a point in your treatment when your orthodontic result can be expected to be stable without continued observation by our office. It is critical to the stability of your result that you continue to wear your retainer two nights a week (Monday and Thursday). There are always forces present in your mouth (such as muscular forces generated by chewing, eating, and talking) that have the potential to move teeth. Your retainers are designed to counteract these forces.
