Great news! You can still enjoy most of your favourite foods during orthodontic treatment. We’ll always go over any instructions you need to know when it comes to wearing braces. But we’ve also put together a reminder of what foods you can enjoy freely - and which are best avoided.
As a general rule, we encourage our patients to avoid anything hard, chewy, sticky or high in sugar or acidity. These things could damage your braces and your teeth.
These lists are not exhaustive. If there’s something you’re unsure about, you can always contact us.
Remember, it’s always best to err on the side of caution to avoid anything that may damage your braces and slow down your treatment.
