Can Invisalign cause TMJ?

I have been working through my Invisalign treatment for many months. I am on my 7th set of trays. Recently, I have started waking up with terrible headaches and my jaw is starting to hurt. Last week, I even feel like my face is hurting on the same side as the jaw pain. It also…


Dental Tourism on the Rise

Leaving the country to undergo a medical procedure sounds like something for the ultra wealthy. It sounds like the story of a 100 year old billionaire going to Switzerland for a procedure that may extend his life for an extra 30 years. It seems absurd. Well, what’s actually absurd is that in 2012 400,000 Americans crossed…

I freak out at the sound of my dentist’s drill!

I am a total dental chicken! I hate everything about the dentist, probably due to a painful experience from when I was young. But what puts me over the top and keeps me laying awake at night is thinking about the sound of the drill. Is there any hope for me? I want to set…


Scared to go to dentist after cancer treatment.

I have had excellent oral health throughout my life. Then, about a year ago I got the dreaded diagnosis of caner. I have endured several rounds of chemotherapy and the cancer seems to be doing better. But my teeth are in bad shape. They ache and can be painful. I have never had a cavity…
