In order for us to help you achieve your goal of a better smile faster, we need your help and cooperation in avoiding types of foods that could loosen or break your appliances or braces. Anything sticky, chewy, gooey, or hard, please stay away from.
Examples of these foods are:
Please compare the food you eat with the examples above--if they have that kind of consistency, don't eat it! Remember, BREAKAGE DELAYS TREATMENT!
Also, please avoid biting into anything like apples, spare ribs, carrots, corn on the cob, or hard sandwiches. You may eat these things, just cut them up into tiny pieces.
Thanks for being careful! We look forward to achieving your goal and ours in a fun and speedier way!
