Appl phys 2009). That's it as far as the real science goes. Don't reward people who didn't tell you this by buying their products. Hit the gym hard. Good luck & thanks for asking. ...Read more

However, if it were to occur temporary anchorage devices (small temporary bone implants) can be utilized as anchors to move all of the back teeth forward.

But that's me. Haven't found any researc. ...Read more
