Instruction during Braces treatment
What you eat can “fuel” dental problems. Every time you eat foods containing sugars or starches, the bacteria in your mouth rapidly grow and produce acid which dissolve the tooth enamel to cause decay.
These acids can attack for 20 minutes or more each time your eat! So think about these points before you eat:
1. It’s important to avoid certain kinds of foods that can damage your braces.
2. Don’t eat nuts or other hard foods. They can bend the wires or break your brackets.
3. Stay away from sticky foods, too – such as chewing gum, caramel, popcorn, eclair.
Remember Breakage Delays Treatment.
