Re: Mewing Can Cause Problems - AAO Warns Against It

I've known about it for many years. Glad that the AAO finally said something about it. I think a lot of people are being conned by it.

INVISALIGN RESPONDS TO CONTROVERSIAL GUN PROMOTION

An orthodontist in North Carolina had offered a free handgun with Invisalign treatment. Because obviously straight teeth and handguns go together. Seriously, WTF?

Re: Smile Direct Club Has Filed for Bankruptcy

I bet more of these companies will be going under as time goes on. IMO, they prey on the uninformed.

Re: Expander causing ear pressure

I'm not a dentist, but my first thought is that your jaw muscles might be sore from clenching or whatever, causing the feeling of pressure in your ears. If it continues, ask your dentist or orthodontist.

Re: Poll: Did You Have An Allergic Reaction to Invisalign?

I started my treatment Nov 2020 and a few months in I could tell something was wrong - almost immediately when putting them in I would get a variety of reactions from blurry vision, my tongue would tingle and shortness of breath. At first I would try to deal with a Zyrtec but then I told my OD who ...
