Don't eat hard foods with Fixed Braces!


Every patient at Swords Orthodontics gets advice on how to look after the different kinds of braces that they have to help their teeth. But we have a video here with one of the fundamental rules of fixed braces!

Orthodontic braces are fixed to the teeth with special dental glue. It's been around since the 1970s and has developed since then to be very reliable, but having said that, those orthodontic brackets aren't held on by magic, so here's my advice:

If you have fixed braces, don't eat hard foods! And don't eat anything that isn't food - pens, buttons, zips, lego...if it isn't food, then don't put it in your mouth.
