If you want to have your braces removed as soon as possible and enjoy the benefits of successful orthodontic treatment, we encourage you to listen to the instructions offered by Dr. Daniel Adams and our team. We are here to help you have the best possible orthodontic journey, and this should include eating foods that are good for braces.

It’s common knowledge that a healthy diet is important for a healthy body, but you may not have known that it can also impact your orthodontic appliance and affect the results of treatment. For example, eating lots of hard and crunchy foods can cause damage to your appliance, delaying your treatment as a result of bent wires and loose or broken brackets. It’s hard to effectively enhance your smile if your braces have become worn down or broken and no longer function properly. This is why we greatly encourage you to eat healthy while wearing an orthodontic appliance.

Your smile can respond to treatment faster when it’s healthy, so teeth that are cared for can reduce the time you need to wear braces. Beware of foods that not only affect your appliance but can lead to tooth enamel loss, cavities, and gum disease, making treatment much more complicated.

We invite you to contact Full Smile Orthodontics at 760.804.0080 today if you need to schedule a time to speak with doctor about how a good diet can help your braces in Carlsbad, California.
