Can your smartphone contribute to the development of temporomandibular joint disorder? Some say yes. Many individuals experience a condition known as "tech neck," where neck pain and poor posture develop from constantly looking down at a smartphone, tablet or other tech devices. Tech neck happens because the act of looking down adds between 10 and 60 pounds of extra weight and pressure on the head and cervical spine.
Do you think your child needs orthodontic treatment, but you aren't sure if it's the best time for braces? What if there was a different way to treat your child's bite problems and crooked or crowded teeth - one that didn't require a bunch of wires and brackets? What if this way didn't just treat crowded teeth and how the smile looks but also helped address issues with facial growth? There is a way: AGGA!
Has someone recommended extracting teeth for orthodontic treatment? This is an outdated treatment technique that is sadly still used. There are very few cases that really need to have teeth extracted to correct the jaw relationships and bite. Jaw development or jaw growth protocols are often a much better option to consider. Some will say this cannot be done, however, it can works on adults as well.
