Eating for Two: You and Your Braces

If you are wearing braces, you may be dreaming about having them removed and enjoying the benefits of all of your orthodontic treatment. If so, you can help this day come as soon as possible by listening to the instructions offered by Dr. Shabbir Adenwalla and our team, who want to help you have a successful orthodontic journey. We encourage you to protect your braces and your smile by avoiding foods that can delay your orthodontic progress.

As you no doubt know, a healthy diet is crucial to keeping your body strong and functional, but many people don’t consider the impact that food can have on an orthodontic appliance and how it may delay treatment. For example, food that is hard and crunchy can greatly damage an orthodontic appliance by bending or snapping the wires or loosening or breaking brackets. Once your braces become worn or broken, they can no longer function properly or help you have a beautiful smile.

It’s important to keep your smile healthy in order to improve the success of your treatment. In order to avoid complicating your treatment as a result of unhealthy teeth, we encourage you to beware of foods that can reduce oral health by leading to gum disease, tooth enamel loss and cavities.

You are welcome to contact the office of Shabbir Adenwalla, DMD, MS at 440-243-9575 today to learn more about a healthy diet for braces in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, from our friendly orthodontist and team.
