X's Q & A

Bones cannot be moved in adults without surgery. In some cases, teeth can be extracted to compensate for skeletal discrepancies. Ask your Orthodontist if you are a candidate for lingual braces.

It is not possible to diagnose and plan a treatment for a patient without x-rays and models of the teeth. Visit an Orthodontist in your area an he/she can develop a treatment plan for you. The cost varies in different regions of the USA and from Orthodontist to Orthodontist. It is possible to visit more than one Orthoddontist to compare treatment plans and their fees. One of the most important factors in selecting an Orthodontist is to select an office where you feel comfortable and have confidence in the Orthodontist.

As an Orthodontist, I specialize in the treatment of malocclusions (bad bites and crooked teeth). I suggest you contact a general dentist or a TMJ specialist for concerns.
