NOTE: These are foods that you would normally bite into with your front teeth. You can still have these good foods, but please cut them into small bite-size pieces.
Remember, No Ice Crunching!
Also, nail biting and picking at your braces with anything can also cause brackets to come loose/off which can prolong your treatment.
