Will I be able to eat and drink as normal?
To avoid any damage to your teeth or braces, you'll need to steer clear of the following during your treatment:
- Sugary snacks and drinks between meals
- Anything particularly sticky, hard or chewy
- Fizzy drinks and large quantities of fruit juice
Will I be able to play contact sports?
Absolutely, but you'll need to wear a mouth guard. We can custom-make you a mouthguard to wear over your braces. To find out more speak to one of the Walkden Dental & Implant Clinic dentists.
Will I be able to play a musical instrument?
Fixed braces can make it trickier to play wind or brass instruments. Most patients quickly adapt, but you should discuss this with your orthodontists. They might recommend a removable brace, which can be taken out for performances.
