Do you have the right nightguard?

Do you have the right nightguard?

This patient had all of her upper teeth moved to an open bite due to her lower appliance hitting only against her front 4 teeth. Her clenching shoved them in!

Now we are correcting her bite with Invisalign, then making her a correct nightguard.

Are you allergic to certain metals?

This patient was allergic to the metal in her braces

Most people don’t realize that they have a metal allergy. They also don’t realize that standard braces contain nickel and the wires contain nickel titanium.

This patient had a severe inflammatory reaction to the braces from another dentist. She was probably told by the dentist that she wasn’t brushing enough around her brackets – when in fact it was due to an allergy.
