1418395 tn?1285067503 It is expensive to get teeth braces for mature people, when compared to children, because the procedure to straighten mature teeth will be harder. The overall cost for straightening mature teeth using braces might range between $5000 and $7000. However, the minimum cost for an average denture or braces cost will not be less than $650. The fees for getting teeth braces can differ when it is treated by a dentist or orthodontist.
748543 tn?1463449675 Dental Occlusion must be synchronized with healthy Mandibular Function as it relates to a healthy head position and by extension a healthy posture. So why are teeth/occlusion so important for posture? In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull.
Avatar m tn My wife is a 65 year old in good health who has taken FOSAMAX for 5 1/2 years. She wants to get her teeth straightened. The periodontist has recommended a procedure to reinforce the gums prior to the braces. This has added an additional 6K to the price and about 3 months to the total time to straighten the teeth.
Avatar f tn Then about 2 months ago at a regular cleaning they noticed the filling had fallen out, so we made an appointment to have it refilled. A month ago we went in and the dentist did a whole new filling, after the procedure he warned me that baby teeth can be funny and to watch the tooth because he get very close to the nerves. Sure enough later that day my son is in agony over the tooth. The dentist gave us a prescription for amox and said that he would now need to do a root canal (pulpatomy ?sp?).

748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn My pinky finger on my left hand will not straighten, when people tell me to straighten my fingers i won't, it just bends slightly... Ive never had it seen to, but everyone asks if i broke it when i was younger but i really don't know. It now annoyes me as everyone points it out, but i don't know what to do about it. It doesnt hurt, well only at times wen i am asked to straighten it, and it takes effort but otherwise i don't get any pain..
Avatar f tn I finally doing a lot better but was then able to see another ENT who said I had a strong gag reflex before even trying to nasally intubate me. He could not do the entire procedure as my pain was so great as it felt like my throat was on fire whenever the tube touched it. But, he said he could see that I did not have any obstructions. He did agree to a modified barium swallow after I told him I thought I might have a neurological and/or possible esophagus disorder.
Avatar n tn I injured my lower back (pulled a muscle) 4 years ago and about 2 months after I began to get a very severe throbbing in my head after I would straighten up and after bending down to pick things up off the floor or to brush my teeth. It also happens when I sneeze, get up out of a chair, laugh very hard, and other various times. The pain starts in the lower back of my head, and radiates up to my temple area. I have had MRI's, X-rays, physical therapy, etc. Nothing helps.
Avatar n tn When the nurse inserted the needle the pain I felt down my arm was like an electric shock and I screamed at her to remove the needle, which she didn't do without probing for a vein first! Since then I have had extreme pain when I straighten my arm, and it constantly feels like when you hit your funny bone except its all down my arm. I have tingling and twitching nerves in my thumb, fore finger and middle finger and randomly the top of my ring finger!
Avatar m tn But please let a qualified TMJ specialist treat you conservitavely first before you undergo any surgical procedure. The more experienced the clinician the fewer surgery referrals needed. Hope that helps.
Avatar n tn Hi all. I had an ablation 4 weeks ago and since that time I have been experiencing chest tightness, pressure, and sharp pains in the heart. I am seeing my doctor on a weekly basis to determine the cause and undergo treatment. Following a work up of tests (echo, nuclear stress, ekg, etc.) the doctor has determined that everything in the heart is normal and that this "discomfort may be something that I just have to ride out.
Avatar n tn I can not recall ever being able to move this freely. The whole premise of this type of procedure is to remove the obstructions in the body to allow the body to heal itself. No fancy surgeries or mental hocus pocus, just plain old common sense: a straight spine. As I said regular chiropratic cannot correct this and may at best give temporary relief. Even surgery would not help. "Normal" is feeling no pain. "Normal" means no tingling or numbness.
Avatar m tn Partial fundoplication could also be an option -- but usually insurance companies never like to pay for this procedure.
86075 tn?1238118691 Tyler is speaking out, he is famous and we NEED HIM to stand up and be counted and speak of HIS experience along with people like Rolf Bershinke who contracted it through a hospital procedure. Like AIDS, the message we need to get out is that people need to be tested and we need a CURE. Each individual has to get over their OWN stigma about how some contracted HCV and stand up and be counted with them.
Avatar n tn after being worked on for a bit my leg straightens out some what which relieves sciatic pain. it just seems to straighten me out and it gives me relief. i know that sounds just too simple but it doesn't hurt to give it a try. also if you do try a chiro and it helps you do crunches to keep your abs tight and that will hold the ribs where they should be:) as i said, just my opinion. The side pain may just be inflamation of your liver. i have that pain all the time to.
Avatar n tn Not necessarily true otherwise everyone would be having to use a condom when they have any sex and it's not even recommended for people in monogamous relationships...rough unprotected sex is more likely to give the tear or bleeding on BOTH sides of the equation anyway. You need the blood from person A to get into the tear of B or vice versa.
Avatar n tn The orthopaedic surgeon told me that the surgery would take about 45 minutes. It actually took nearly 3 hours. After the procedure, he told me my knee was "a mess" and one of the worst he'd seen since practicing medicine. Like one of the others' posts to this site, the MRI and x-ray did not reveal all of the damage I've had to my left knee.
Avatar n tn Call the university and talk with them about this procedure it's painless it just burns away sinus tissue helping the eustations tube to began working. I pray you get better.
Avatar n tn He also said that this injury/condition is very rare and that there is no surgical procedure in any of the text books to address this. Anyway, he told me that he has seen this once before. Someone from China flew in to see him since nobody in China could help him. This person did end up needing surgery. I really liked this ENT doctor/surgeon...especially since he said to me "I will give you any infomation I can give you with your options...
Avatar f tn I thought that I was just being a big baby about this, especially since my doctor had told me I could return to work two days after the procedure!! My boss' wife informed me she had the procedure ten years ago and said that she was up and "running around" after three days; I'm sure this she remembers it this way because she is filling in for me at work and hates that! I am just amazed that every one of us got told that a couple of days is the expected recovery time.
Avatar n tn Now my view is what a terrible mistake I made when I agreed to the procedure. The consultant appears to have washing his hands. I saw another consultant who says nothing can be done. Has anyone else experienced this lack of concern. Just go away it might get better in a year or so.
Avatar n tn It could result in permanent nerve injury — and malpractice litigation involving the nurse performing the procedure is not uncommon. The two nerves most often injured during a venipuncture procedure are the radial and median nerves. The radial nerve passes along the thumb side of the arm, from the shoulder down into the wrist area, and is in close proximity to the cephalic vein. In a venipuncture procedure, the cephalic vein is often the vein of choice for many clinicians.
Avatar n tn constant ear popping, left eye area and cheek hurts along with my upper teeth, and my left nostril is numb. I have lost my appitite and have gas that taste like my stomach gases. What is it? I have tried cold medicine, decongestant, and ibporphen for my headache or to try to relieve some pressure surrounding my nose and eye. I have run out of options.
Avatar f tn You can not know until it is out. There is also a procedure that they can do to get rid of the extra lining of the uterus that is causing the bleeding. It is called Endometrial Ablation. Look it up and see if you can find a Dr who might do this as a treatment. Bleeding like this is not normal and there are several things a Dr can do to treat it besides give you hormones. It really sounds like you need to find a different Dr in a different area other than your small town.
885099 tn?1243550605 We present a series of 11 cases in which all patients had an audible clicking or popping noise in the throat associated with neck and throat pain when swallowing or turning the neck. The most helpful diagnostic procedure was careful examination and palpation of the neck while the patient swallowed to localize the side and source of the clicking. Laryngeal computed tomographic (CT) scans helped in some cases to demonstrate thyroid-cartilage and/or vertebral body asymmetry.
Avatar f tn If we are talking he will ask me to go brush my teeth or use listerine. I do not have exceptionally bad breath, I am normal- I checked with my dentist. He asked me if there was any way to lessen his sense of smell, and I thought cauterization of his nose might be an option. I also saw online that Topamax could be used as well. I haven't been able to find very much information about it- apparently Hyperosmia is not very common. Are there any treatments?
Avatar n tn Lasts 5 minutes where I can't stand, straighten my leg, I sweat, panic, and can't seem to do anything to relieve it at all. Embarrassingly - it happened to me at a dinner party! Everyone panicked - no one could do anything! Then just as suddenly as it comes, it goes! And no residual pain! How can so many people suffer from the same thing - and no one seems to know what it is. I've spoken to my Chiropractor and Doctor and they have no clue - sciatic nerve they think.
Avatar f tn Don't be surprised is he refuses to even take your call, It happens all the time and unfortunately that is the usual procedure. And think about it? Do you really want a PMP that no longer trusts you and that apparently uses faulty procedures to collect urine samples for drug screens? I certainly would not. You are correct there are some statistics that say that urine drug screening can be as high as 80% but you will never get a PM Clinic to admit to that. They have to rely on something.
