Patient Co-Operation and Diet

Patient Co-Operation and a Diet

Not only is your diet important to protect and maintain your healthy teeth but it is also important to ensure that you avoid breaking your brace as this will only increase the treatment time and affect the quality of the results.

It is important to avoid sticky and chewy food, such as chewing gum, toffee, caramels etc. In the case of hard foods such as apples, raw vegetables etc it is essential to cut them first into very small pieces before eating them.
