Foods/Drinks to avoid staining of clear braces?

#1 Post by CapeTownJess » Fri Feb 02, 2018 4:10 am

I'm 25 and got Damon braces yesterday!

I'm looking for advice on what foods and drinks to avoid so that my clear braces don't stain?
I guess red wine is a no go..

Thanks!

I have had clear brackets on my top six teeth since August and have not had any staining. I don't think you should have a problem with Damon brackets staining. It's usually the ligatures around the clear brackets that stain, and since Damons are self-ligating, they don't have elastic ligatures. I have eaten curry, drank red wine, etc, with no staining of the brackets. My teeth themselves look yellower than when I got braces, since I'm not allowed to whiten, but the brackets themselves look fine.
