Most orthodontic emergencies can be avoided by eliminating certain foods that can break the appliances during treatment. A comprehensive list of foods to avoid is provided at the start of treatment.

Mouth guards suited for braces should be used for sports. Please consult with Dr. Lempert or one of our clinical staff members for more information on this topic.
