Helpful tip for brushing on the road

How often do you have your teeth cleaned?

Re: Undoing extraction orthodontics?

I was so happy to find this thread. I am 51 years old. I have been dealing with the problems caused by four bicuspid extractions, braces and headgear which I was treated with as a child. I now have serious neck and tmj problems, my cross bite and overjet have returned, my condyles started melting aw...
