Okay, after spending 30 minutes in Google trying to find the cover of TIME magazine images for 2010, nothing but other crap has showed up.
I can't remember which month it was. I think I showed up for my first adjustment after getting braces which was November 2010 and he had the Magazine framed standing at the entrance desk...showing it off.
On my next appointment I will certainly ask which month that was puplished and let you know.
His name is Dr. Troy Alan Williams and he is located in Twin Falls, Idaho. He also has a physicians of the year award from 2004. The praxis is called Braces R Us.
My jaw does not 'hang' there anymore, although atm non of my teeth fit since I just had my wire bent again last Wednesday and all my teeth are on the move. My top canines sit like 1/2 mm too far down, which looks good, but is not functional for me because the lower canines are also long and kinda hit the tops. So he is moving the upper out...and in 6 weeks we will see how it all fits. If they're still in the way then he will move them back up a bit so I don't clash my canines together. The lower jaw seems to be a bit more flexible than the upper and it expanded faster, I sometimes have to have a power chain on my lower jaw to keep things from moving too fast. I hate the power chain ...
At night, my jaw is relaxed and I don't feel like I have to hold my jaw in place to keep it from popping, clenching and whatnot. I used to sleep with an extra pillow under my lower jaw to keep it from hanging. I sleep on my side and belly. If my lower jaw didn't have the support, I would wake up with severe headaches and tension in my face and jaw and at times it felt like my lower jaw was dislocated (which it wasn't).
Not knowing where to put the lower jaw my entire life has really given me a ton of stress, unconcious stress. I knew something was wrong but I didn't know what it was until I read WAPF's article 'Is it Mental or Dental?'. I bought his book 'Nutrition and Physical Degeneration' and immediately called my mother to dog her out!
I've been on a Primal 'diet' since April 2010 and braces were put on end of September the same year. He borrowed my book (not sure if he read it all) and was fascinated about my printed -'Is it Dental or Mental'- article. He asked to keep it to show to future adult patients.
I am so glad I found Dr. Williams. The consultations I had with all the other Orthos all suggested surgery + additional braces afterwards, but also, non of those had self-ligating brackets in their office. They all used conventional braces. I was referred to Dr. Williams by an Orthodontist who wasn't afraid to admit that this is something he cannot do, his name was Dr. Geist and does surgery to widen the dental arch/palate, and then slaps on train tracks to just straighten teeth...which in reality doesn't correct the bite imo.
