If you have had braces in the past or know someone who has, then you’ll also know there’s a seemingly endless list of foods you can’t eat or drink. Anything sticky, sugary, gummy or hard is on the “don’t eat” list. Everything from chewing gum to carrot sticks may be a no-go with braces.
If you’re looking for a dentist in the Bedford area, look no further than Docbraces! Your local offices can be found conveniently on Kearney Lake Road in Halifax or Baker Drive in Dartmouth. Led by orthodontists Dr. Andrew Thompson and Dr. Kevin Knowlton, we would love to help you with any bite or alignment work that you require at either of our two comfortable practices.

It might have been recommended that you visit an orthodontist if you’re experiencing any pain or discomfort in your jaws or face, or if you have any worries about your smile that you’d like to fix. Orthodontists are specially trained in malocclusions, or “poor bites”. If you’re suffering from an overbite, underbite, crossbite or any crooked and uneven teeth, your orthodontist will be able to determine the root cause of the issue and design a treatment plan specifically for you.
The Docbraces offices near Bedford have a number of features to help ensure that your treatment is precise and is as quick as possible. We’ve got the latest diagnostic equipment to help Dr. Thompson and Dr. Knowlton create your treatment plan, and you’ll find our practices nice and comfortable. There’s always complimentary hot chocolate, tea and coffee available, as well as WiFi to help you prepare for your appointment.

It can also help reduce lifestyle related health problems such as heart disease, and help you absorb more nutrients from food through more efficient chewing.
