What foods should I avoid?

When wearing braces or orthodontic appliances, we ask you to avoid eating very hard or sticky foods such as hard lollies, toffee and muesli bars.

Hard foods such as carrots, apples and meat on the bone should be cut up and chewed on the back teeth. If you think the food will be hard, please cut it into small pieces rather than biting into it. 

Sticky foods include Roll-ups, redskins, minties and toffees or anything that can pull wires out of place or get stuck in the braces should be avoided. 

Soft foods are preferable when you are wearing braces.
