Dentist question: composite hello, I have direct bonding on my teeth, i love composite, i actually hate porcelain, i know, i know porcelain is the choice material, but to me it looks very, very fake; regardless of what is claimed; my question is can I get

Damon braces (notmetal) vs lingual? My dr claims damon aremore effective,they make smile wider, reduce dark triangles. is he biased?he only does damon

See a pro: General dentist's who do braces are not as trains or as skilled as Orthodontic Specialists. An Orthodontist knows that the training and skill of the operator is more important then the gadget. Lingual appliances take longer to treat. Damon appliances tend to flare teeth outward. Please seek a specialist's opinion. ...Read more

My rheumatologist says I am "false negative for c-reactive protein", because she can plainly see that I have inflammation. Why am i false negative?

Other blood proteins: The CRP is affected by a variety of inflammatory proteins in the blood, in some patients other markers of inflammation such as the esr, ferritin, ssa, platelet count or transferrin may better reflect the level of inflammation. The other possibility is that you have localized inflammation that is not enough to raise the crp, children with some types of jra (few joints) never have high crps. ...Read more

Dermatology consult, said there was absolutely nothing they can do for white fibrotic acne scars I have. Is he right?

Lingual braces require more chair time and more overall treatment length. What is of greatest importance is training, skill, and experience of the practitioner, not the gadget. See a fully qualified Orthodontic Specialist for best result. ...Read more
