Re: Has anyone cured their TMJ with orthodontics?

I used to have pretty bad TMJ pre-braces but now I've barely noticed any cracks when I eat or yawn (I've also been very weary of it)

Re: Concerns about Treatment

Sometimes there can be delays from what an orthodontist would have initially estimated, perhaps just have a look if they are reasonable - is it a compliance issue or is it that the teeth aren't moving as what was expected by the orthodontist?

Re: Soda vs. sugary drinks

Remember not to brush so soon after as acidity makes your enamel weak and brushing will result in brushing your enamel away - wait at least an hour before brushing and always rinse with water.

Re: Can I bargain to get my braces off early?

Just make sure you've checked everything and you're happy - look for any opposing reasons as to why you shouldn't be taking it off just yet. Better safe than sorry otherwise go for it :)
