Meet Dr. Bruce Oliver
CDI Orthodontic Consultant
Dr Bruce Oliver has been creating SMILES for his patients for over 20 years. Dr. Oliver obtained a Bachelor of Science and Doctorate of Dental Surgery at McGill university. He obtained a Masters of Science and Specialty in Orthodontics from the State University Of New York at Buffalo.
Dr Oliver would be happy to discuss with you the various orthodontic treatment possibilities for improving your SMILE.
The goal of Canadian Digital Imaging is to maximize the potential of CBCT in the diagnosis, treatment planning and communication of dental treatment. CDI is at the forefront of the digital revolution that uses facially generated diagnosis and treatment planning to assist dentists and patients/clients in implant planning, sinus and TMJ diagnosis, and orthodontic and cosmetic evaluation.
We are a training centre that works to educate both dentists and staff on the many aspects of Conebeam CT. Our mission at CDI is to acknowledge the ALARA principle, by providing intelligent dose CBCT imaging to enhance diagnosis, treatment planning, and improved clinical outcomes.
My advice to dentists is to invest in themselves, learning to do more for your patients, and be careful of chasing the ever-changing technology. When we work together as a community, the costs can be kept down and shared technology can then be updated and used to its maximum potential.

If you want to improve the look and feel of your smile, then any age can be a great age to see the orthodontist. It is recommended that children first visit an orthodontist around the age of 7; however, orthodontic treatment is not exclusive to children and teens. Whether you’re considering treatment for yourself or your child, any time is a great time to visit an orthodontist.
Playing an instrument or a contact sport may require some adjustment when you first get your braces, but wearing braces will not stop you from participating in any of your school activities. If you play a contact sport, it is recommended that you wear a mouthguard to protect your braces or appliance. Let us know if you require a mouthguard and we can organize that for you.A thorough hard and soft tissue is essential to prevent and maintain areas of the oral cavity.
If you are pregnant we will not take an x-ray but we can still get an understanding of where your teeth are through our scanners and photos. Treatment can be completed when pregnant.
With braces, you should brush your teeth at least three times a day to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy and clean. Brushing and flossing regularly will help remove any food that may be caught between your braces.
Having braces put on is generally painless. Some people experience minor aches and pains in the first couple of days or so, as they adjust to wearing their appliances; periodic adjustments may sometimes cause soreness as well, though it typically lasts only a short time. Over-the-counter pain relievers can be used to alleviate any discomfort, but are usually unnecessary.
If your teeth are severely crowded (because your mouth is too small to properly accommodate all of them) — or if you have impacted teeth (teeth that are trapped beneath the gum line by other teeth) — then extraction may be necessary. In the case of younger patients, early treatment may make extraction unnecessary.
Simply contact us via phone call or email. Our staff will be happy to help schedule your next appointment at your convenience. If you are a new patient or have been referred to our practice, please let us know and we will provide you with all of the information you need.
