Dear Dentists: The porcelain  cover near #12 in 4 units bridge broke.It was  made from PFM w/ high noble.Any other rigid  materials you recomm to use.

For 'runners knee' which running shoe would u recommend - Asics Gel Enhance Ultra 3 Running Shoe or Brooks Womens Adrenaline GTS 15 Running Shoe?

Not just Shoes...: Either shoe will do, but shoes are not the end all treatment for runners knee. There are many more things to consider before fixating on the shoe type. More important is whether you had, presently have or are in a preventive mode for the treatment of the problem.

Not diagnostic: Your picture indicates upper and lower anterior crowding. What is not discernible is the amount of bone support. Straightening teeth with inadequate bone support is doomed to failure. Fixed appliances may be necessary. With your history once a solution is found, aggressive post-correction retention will be mandatory. See a qualified Orthodontic Specialist. ...Read more
