Stay simple: Much of what dr. K says is correct. My approach is to diagnose the problem first, getting the muscles relaxed with a bite appliance is key. Once feeling better, of you want to get rid of the 24/7 appliance, consider orthodontics to that position, reconstruction, or tooth reshaping (coronplasty), depending on the severity of the bite discrepancy. ...Read more

Pulsed Dye Laser: Pulsed dye laser is an excellent choice for the treatment of facial rosacea or telangiectasias. The treatment is very effective and is not painful. It has very little downtime and is done in the office. This should be combined with sun protection. In my opinion, the syneron/candela v-beam perfecta laser is the best pdl. If not treated, the tiny facial veins become engorged and can fill up. ...Read more

Don't guess or self treat: get care ASAP. ...Read more

Can mild scoliosis be cured completely? I've been told I have scoliosis, but it's not severe. Will treatment cure the problem completely, or will I always have some curvature? .
No: There is really no "cure" for mild scoliosis from the structural perspective. Non surgical treatments do not straighten the curve and we do not do surgery for mild curves. But the reason all that is ok is because mild curves are not really usually associated with problems. Even the incidence of back pain is similar in someone with a mild curve as it is in someone with a straight spine. Thanks. ...Read more
