Patient Advice

Will I have to change what I eat?

Bay Orthodontics Still 03

It's likely your teeth will be tender for a few days after appointments, so we recommend eating soft food during this time.

Take a pain reliever such as Panadol or Nurofen if necessary. It's important to take care with the food you eat as your braces are nowhere near as strong as your own teeth. Sticky and hard food can break the braces off your teeth.

We recommend cutting food into small pieces and gently chewing on your back teeth.

If you have any concerns about eating with your orthodontic treatment, please let us know.
