Ortho News

I have a cross-bite. The dentist recommended that I see an orthodontist [a specialist in making your teeth straight]. We picked Long Orthodontics Assoc.[LOA]. I visited, had spacers put in and now I have an expander. It wasn't to bad but the worst thing was getting the mold made of my mouth so the doctor could have the expander made. So an expander is put into your mouth to widen your upper jaw so your teeth fit together better. It has a little hole that you put a key in and you turn the key. Mine turns 40 times - I just hit 20 turns last week! Don't be afraid! It's no big deal! I really like Dr. Howard and the LOA team! Your friend, Veda
