    Question Braces during pregnancy-safe?

    Hello, mothers out there!!
    I am in my second trimester of pregnancy. I have a problem of incorrect jaw position.Due to this,I am suffering from biting and chewing issues. I can’t chew most of the hard foods and hence I drink juices rather than having food. I fear whether my baby would get undernourished due to this.Being anxious on the same,my husband fixed an appointment with emergency dental services Toronto for an orthodontic treatment.
    But recently I came across an article https://angiemedia.com/2009/12/15/to.../#.V-NlWCF97IU which contained an information like “If you are pregnant, nursing, or have children, for the safety and long-term health of your kids you must be particularly careful to avoid exposure to mercury and other toxic heavy metals”.I am slightly worried after reading this. Also, I am afraid to take orthodontic treatment during pregnancy.
    . I am kind of stuck with this. What should I do now? Is there any other way to solve this?Please help.
