Thanks for sharning this! I've been looking around for different orthodontist's in Edmonton, but don't know where to look. I looked at http://drmar.ca/ , and they had some useful information. I was just going to see if anyone else had any other suggestions as to where I could look? Thanks again for sharing.

I'm in Edmonton and this is a warning to anyone who is considering braces for themselves or their children, in Edmonton or elsewhere. I know too many people who have gotten TMJ from having orthodontics. It used to be that if an orthodontist gave you TMJ problems during treatment, they were liable. But because of the popularity of orthodontics and many patients being injured, and all the orthodontic lawsuits, the orthodontic associations and dental associations have now changed their view to state that orthodontics can neither cause nor correct TMJ problems. Therefore all orthodontists now tell you before you start treatment that TMJ is very common and can happen at any time including during braces, but that the orthodontics and TMJ aren't related! So they are telling you right off the bat that if they injure you by putting your teeth in a position that hurts your facial muscles and TMJ joints, don't bother to sue because they are now denying any correlation exists, which is NOT true, as any general dentist will tell you. So be careful anywhere you go, and especially if your teeth are crowded do NOT let any ortho extract permanent teeth, and REFUSE to wear a headgear that retracts the upper jaw since these things are known to cause TMJ problems and will also cave your face and lips in. In summary, do your homework on orthodontics, and especially on functional appliances to expand the jaws and move the lower jaw forward in the case of "buck teeth" which is what your child needs instead of extractions or retractive headgear or jaw surgery. RUN from any ortho who wants to do extractions or headgear. Also make sure you read everything you sign, and make sure any questions you ask are noted and any answers given are accurately noted. Get copies of your chart notes after every appointment because if a problem develops later, your chart notes can easily be changed by the ortho to suit his needs. Take this as advice from someone who learned the hard way.

I did forget to mention that in the event you or your child develops TMJ because of improper orthodontics, the new "standard of care" promoted by the orthodontic associations is to refer you to a psychiatrist or psychologist for cognitive behavioral therapy or antidepressants because the TMJ problem according to them, is psychological! Talk about insult after injury!
