The author of this blog is a dissatisfied former orthodontics patient from Sweden. The purpose of the blog is to write down my thoughts about orthodontics and the information I have been able to find during my research.
The treatment I received was done by the book and is still being used today (four bicuspids extraction and retraction to treat overjet and crowding). Therefore I see it as my duty to inform people about the complications that can occur. Straight teeth, sure, but not at the expense of your face and your health.
Please note that I’m not a doctor or a dentist so I can’t guarantee that what I write here is correct. However, I did spend over 200 hours researching this topic. If you have a question that you think I can answer, don’t hesitate to post a comment and I’ll do my best to try to answer it.
