Be careful what you eat with braces
Updated: 1/5/2013 5:57:19 AM
 

Be careful what you eat with braces  When it comes to dental work, one of the most common procedures is installing braces. According to Colgate.com, an estimated three million American and Canadian teens have braces, and many adults have been getting these corrective dental appliances as well. It's important for people who have crooked teeth to look into getting braces, since misaligned teeth can make a big difference when making a first impression or going to a job interview.

Dental Health Magazine states that people who have braces need to follow a few rules. For example, those with braces should do their best to stay away from hard candy, since biting down on these sweets can not only damage the teeth, but braces as well. If chewy or hard candy causes a tooth to become loose, there is a good chance that people won't notice until their braces have been removed, and at that point, it may be too late to do anything about it.

Furthermore, if a dentist notices a loose tooth, there's a good chance that he or she will prolong the amount of time that a person has to have braces on.
