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.
Our Summerside practice is led by Orthodontist Dr. Deepak Arora. From our office located on Water Street East, Dr. Arora and the team of orthodontic experts deliver a range of treatments to patients starting from 7 years old. All new patients are given a free consultation, so call now to arrange yours. We’ll identify the issues you’re facing and discuss your treatment options with you.
Orthodontists are specialists in the assessment and treatment of issues that are caused by bite or dental alignment issues. These kinds of issues, like irregular bite patterns or uneven jaw relationships, can have an impact on self-confidence and can cause frequent discomfort and pain.
When you come for your consultation, we’ll use our state of the art diagnostic equipment to run tests and determine the issues you’re facing. We’ll then create a treatment plan to fix these issues as quickly as we can, with the least amount of discomfort possible.
Summerside Orthodontist Treatments
There are a number of treatment options available from our Docbraces Summerside office including:
Damon Clear braces
Express Smiles™ treatment for certain candidates.
Addressing any orthodontic issues you might have, however minor you think they might be, can have a big impact on your future health. Some of the benefits are that you’ll be less likely to be diagnosed with gum or heart disease, you’ll see an improvement in your oral hygiene and you’ll find that as chewing becomes more efficient your body will absorb more nutrients from food.
