Foods to Avoid with Braces
Any type of food that’s hard or crispy can break the brackets and/or loosen bands. When the bracket breaks or your band gets loose, the tooth will shift to its original position. This translates to being in braces for a longer than anticipated amount of time. Also, broken orthodontic appliances require an extra trip to our office for replacement/repair, not to mention a disappointment from Dr. Saba.
