Why : Why not go on your trip, and when you get back to compton, have your braces put on by a local dentist? What would be the advantage of having orthodontic brackets placed in mexico and having three weeks worth of movement? Your dentist in compton may not agree with the treatment plan of the mexican dentist, and may want to treat you in a different manner. In addition, your compton dentist will be taking on the responsibilitiy of your treatment, and therefore will want to be compensated for that responsibility. I cannot understand why you would want to place the brackets in mexico and have your treatment in the us. If you can elaborate, i may be able to further answer your question. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What will i and won't i be able to eat with braces? I'm 42, and want to get braces for the first time. Before i go in for my first consultation, i'd like to have some idea of what to expect. A list of what i likely will and won't be able to eat would be f
You : You will be able to eat almost everything if you are careful. Think of it this way, the brackets are attached to the side of the teeth, not the tops where most of the actual chewing happens. So as long as you keep your food off the sides you should be ok. For example, biting into a whole raw carrot or an apple will easily knock a bracket off, but if you cut the them into thin slices, you can enjoy these foods. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
