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.
Dr. Peter Porter, who was PEI’s first orthodontist and had been working in the field for over 30 years, has now retired and Dr. Papadopoulos is taking his place.
You’ll find orthodontist Dr. Christos Papadopoulos at Docbraces’ Charlottetown office. From the Docbraces office on Malpeque Road, we offer treatments for numerous dental issues to patients ranging in age from 7 onwards. All new patients can expect a free consultation to help us identify the underlying issues causing the problems, and create a solution to help you reduce discomfort and achieve the results you want.
Orthodontists are specially trained to identify and solve dental issues that are caused by irregular spacing of teeth, uneven jaw relationships and improper bites. When left without treatment these issues can cause a lot discomfort and pain, even leading to issues with low self-esteem over time.
When you first visit our office, you can expect to receive a number of tests to determine what kinds of issues you are facing and their cause. We use the most advanced diagnostic equipment to help us determine the best course of treatment and create a strategy to make sure you reach your goals.
