Braces and Invisalign : How Can I Prevent My Braces From Breaking?

Almost everyone in braces and orthodontic treatment experiences a broken bracket on their braces once or twice. The key is to avoid a few types of foods and habits while wearing braces that are most often the culprits of broken braces and orthodontics. Our orthodontic practices can help with damaged braces in Austin & Round Rock, Texas (TX).

braces eatWith a calendar full of parties, school functions, sleepovers, and birthdays, please make sure your child is aware that they should not eat hard, sticky, and chewy foods like caramel and hard candy while wearing braces. Your child may have an easier time remembering this rule when you are near, but it may be harder when they are around friends who are not in braces or orthodontic treatment and are partaking in these types of treats. To counteract this, make sure your child’s friends’ parents and your child’s teachers also know about this and can avoid these types of snacks.

Also, if you hear your child grinding their teeth or notice them clenching, please let us know. Sometimes this can cause broken brackets, and often we can fabricate a bite guard to help prevent damage to their braces and orthodontics.
