Eating


It is likely your teeth will be tender for a few days after appointments, so eat soft food during this time.

Take a pain reliever such as Panadol or Nurofen if necessary.

Taking care with the foods you eat is important as your braces are nowhere near as strong as your own teeth.  Sticky and hard food can break the braces off your teeth.  Cut up food into small pieces and gently chew on your back teeth.
