Oh my goodness! I wish I would have read these posts earlier! My daughter who is 15 started having headaches last year. They have become terribly worse! We have been to neurologists,headache specialists,had MRI's given injections! We finally coincided the headaches with the braces!! I thought maybe TMD and such,so I called the orthodontist who is an extreme perfectionist about his work. He claimed that he would check her, and he did and said she was ok,and that they would try and speed up her treatment and give her a night appliance. We are currently missing school every other day,and only attending for a few hours every day. Homework has become impossible to complete!! She is (or was) an A student with high aspirations in science and it is killing me to watch this degeneration due to braces!I too am concerned about the pain still being there if we take the braces off. This has been so difficult to deal with,and I was ready to have the house checked for mold,toxins,etc until I read the previous posts! If anyone has any ideas as to how we can help my daughter or anyone else with this malady,please post or contact me!View Thread
