I had braces put on my teeth last June.

I have severe post nasal drip only after I eat.
My ortho never heard of that?

Did my braces cause this?

In order to better understand your question, I must know how long you have had post nasal drip since you’ve put braces on your teeth. An otorhinolaryngologist (ORL-specialist for ear,nose and throat) can help answer your question.
