Doctor insights on:
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Are damon braces better thn lingual? My dr says theyre more effective, they make smile wider, reduce dark triangles. is he biased?he only does damons
It's a cult: Well refereed studies have shown overall time in treatment to be equivalent to other traditional braces, although chair time may be reduced. 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Warning!!:PODIATRIST Dr. David Tobin responded to my question about Anterior Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome saying it didn't exist? Google and my DR disagree.
Drs Weil & Ornish: Principally, they just spend time with people talking about healthy living and healthy eating. Why this is rare in typical office practice is that regular doctors do not have as much time as drs. Weil & ornish do, who work mainly in special consultations and don't do all the other stuff that family docs and regular primary care docs do. ...Read more
Dr. Peter m. Ihle - clarifying earlier mess I do have patellofemoral syndrome & chondromalacia w/subluxable patella....Re pop. What procedures correct?
Try Exercise First: I'm not sure if this is a question that had already been answered or not, but you should address any foot issues ( over pronation, flat arches , etc) then use exercises to stretch lateral knee structures and strengthen the vastus medialis muscle in the quads. Physical therapy may help as well. Don't jump to surgery unless you try conservative treatments for a few months first. ...Read more
Define good...: Lots of whitening products can work. Compared to a professional options, "over-the-counter" products are weaker and have fewer options (time required or how well it is customized to your teeth). I recommend you find a great dentist with a whitening for life program who will wait until your teeth are in optimum health (to prevent sensitivity), and then provide a complimentary solution. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Some, maybe: Without seeing your bite an accurate diagnosis is impossible. I can tell you that at age 39, your growth is complete and any orthodontic correction is limited. A severe overjet needs surgery to correct in an adult. I suggest you talk to a orthodontist and get all your options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can TMJ braces also help with the alignment in your teeth like orthodontic braces? (silly question, i know, but i'm just curious)

An example= MORA (Mandibular Orthopedic Re-positioning Appliance). This can be used to confirm correct position of jaw and then restore on a permanent basis with Orthodontic treatment or restorations or both. The two are very different but can be used in combination for success. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
