When you have braces in Lowell, Massachusetts, they might feel a little awkward at first. Your teeth might be sensitive to pressure but you will become used to the product in no time. Your orthodontists, Dr. Lala and Dr. Bednarz, ask that you take special care of your teeth and braces. The brackets on your teeth can easily break, and if they do, your treatment can last longer than expected. To keep your braces in top condition, we ask that you refrain from eating the following foods:

• Gum
• Beef Jerky
• Corn Chips
• Nuts
• Hard or Sticky Candy
• Popcorn
• Soft Drinks
• Candy Bars
• Caramel
• Celery
• Whole Apples
• Crisp Taco Shells

Our team at Orthodontic Associates of New England recommends avoiding these products because they have the potential to cause problems with your orthodontic treatment. You will have plenty of time to partake of these products as soon as you are done with the treatment, and we appreciate your willingness to ensure a successful and productive orthodontic experience. If you have any questions about your future life with braces, please feel free to give us a call. We are here to help you in any way we can!
