Orthodontic correction
« on: May 22, 2011, 10:18:23 pm »
I happen to be a good example of what happens to people on "civilized" diets in regards to orthodontic health. I had braces (which I ABSOLUTELY HATED) as a young teenager, but it wasn't effective in the long run. It did fix how my teeth were aligned in respect to each other. My lower jaw is underdeveloped; my chin recedes back toward my neck. Full smiles are uncomfortable for me as if my mouth isn't quite big enough for all my teeth.  My right TMJ is not in the right position, and it is throwing my facial symmetry off noticeably. My teeth are not horizontal with respect to my eyes; the side with the TMJ problem is pulled more up.

At my age, 19, is it possible at all for any of these factors to improve if not by diet but by some other method? I have been hitting vitamin D and K2 really really hard, basically a shot in the dark measure. Or... Do I have to spend the rest of my life not wanting to look in the mirror or smile? -[ -[
All I want is the truth... Just gimme some truth.

Human growth hormone can make your jaw grow. Might be hard to get a script. You could also try ALF appliances.
