Many people who have had retractive orthodontic treatment develop pain patterns they can’t explain. Some make the connection. Others suffer in silence and never figure out what is going on. Still others realize what was happening only after their extraction spaces are re-opened and the pain fades. A good number of our patients who have spaces re-opened for esthetic reasons ultimately eliminate a symptom pattern they had never connected to their teeth and jaws.
Re-opening extraction spaces is a drug-free treatment. It could not be more “all natural,” “holistic,” or “organic!” It is all about restoring your teeth and jaws to a harmonious relationship with more adequate tongue space – the way it was meant to be.
