Maintaining Your New Appliance

Just like any other type of appliance, you will need to be careful what you eat when wearing the Herbst Appliance. There are a variety of foods that you should steer clear from so that it does not loosen, bend, or pull away from the teeth. Some foods you should not consume include:

  • Cold Foods Like Popsicles
  • Bubble Gum
  • Caramel Filled Candy
  • Crisp Veggies
  • Hard Candies

Once we have attached the Herbst Appliance, we will have you scheduled for regular appointments and checkups to make any necessary adjustments. If you are experiencing any pain on the inside of your cheeks, please do not attempt to adjust the appliance yourself. Call and schedule an appointment and we will take a look at the appliance for you.
