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.
Docbraces are experts in orthodontic treatment and we’d love to assist you in our Halifax practice, which is led by Dr. Andrew Thompson and Dr. Kevin Knowlton. Our office is located conveniently on the Kearney Lake Road and we are able to treat a range of dental issues, from the simple to the complex, in patients from ages 7 and up. We’re happy to offer free consultations to our new patients so please call and make an appointment today if you have any orthodontic issues you’d like to address.
Orthodontists are trained to address issues that are caused by improper bites from irregular spacing of teeth, mis-matched jaw relationships or a combination of both. If left untreated, these issues can cause pain and other health issues. In many cases, poor bites can have a large impact on self-esteem.
When you come to see us, we’ll use a number of diagnostic strategies to figure out what kinds of problems you’re facing and develop a strategy to address these issues and any concerns you might have.
