Can I eat normally?November, 2012
Yes you should be able to eat normally. However, for your orthodontic treatment to work well & in the shortest possible time it is important you take care of your teeth & brace. In order to prevent damage to both, you should:
* Avoid eating toffees, boiled sweets, sugared chewing gum, chocolate bars, etc.
* Avoid drinking fizzy drinks (including diet drinks) & excessive amounts of fruit juice.
* Take care eating hard foods which might damage the brace such as crunchy apples, crusty bread, etc. Cut them up first.
