The holiday season is filled with fun, special food, but with all the extra treats coming our way, taking care of orthodonture is even more important.
Embrace Your Smile Orthodontics, a renowned local provider in Santa Clarita, highly encourages residents of the Valley to take care of their mouth and smile through personal health habits and orthodontic care.
With pies, cookies, cakes, and candies making their way into our homes, making sure to watch out for food dangerous to braces is important. Hard candy when chewed can be damaging to orthodonture, as well as hard carrots and similar vegetables and fruits. There’s one excuse to get out of your aunt’s rock-hard fruit cake!
Embrace Your Smile Orthodontics encourages its patients and braces-wearers everywhere to be mindful and thorough when brushing, and consistent with flossing. These practices can make or break your treatment, leading to either success or even more problems.
The amazing team of passionate and experienced staff at Embrace Your Smile Orthodontics affirms and promotes a comprehensive oral health care routine, especially when you have orthodontic appliances such as braces or Invisalign.
“[Our orthodontists] have a solid reputation on Orthodontics in the Santa Clarita community as the premier providers of orthodontics to children, teenagers and adults using Invisalign and traditional braces. Together, they strive to provide orthodontic excellence and five-star customer service in a friendly, caring environment that makes each patient feel like a member of their family,” states Embrace Your Smile Orthodontics.
FOODS TO AVOID
- Chewy foods: bagels, hard rolls, licorice
- Crunchy foods: popcorn, ice, chips
- Sticky foods: caramels, gum
- Hard foods: nuts, candy
- Foods you have to bite into: corn on the cob, apples, carrots
- Chewing on hard things (for example, pens, pencils or fingernails) can damage the braces. Damaged braces will cause treatment to take longer.
