What's Up

Pain Free

Ever look at a friend and think, “She didn’t need braces, her teeth looked great.” 

Keri is that friend.   On first glance, her smile was nice.  She had braces as a child. However, after a short chat with her, you’d learn that she’d been plagued with headaches and jaw pain for over a decade.   Never did she think her teeth were the culprit.


Dr. Allen is versed in a technique known to dentists as the LVI (Las Vegas Institute) philosophy.  As you’ve heard Dr. Allen say before, knowledge of all the dental philosophies is key to giving patients a full mouth reconstruction.  We are only as great as our personal exposures and investigations.  A one-tract minded dentist/orthodontist is not your friend.


Keri underwent pre-orthodontic “orthotic” treatment with her LVI trained dentist.  This created a pain-free environment Dr. Allen had to stabilize after the year of prep work by the dentist.  “It couldn’t be harder to do.  Maintaining a joint position in a patient and moving teeth into a new position to hold the jaw there rather than the jaw adjusting to the movement of the teeth is a science not many are willing to understand. “ 


Keri finish orthodontic treatment with Marc Allen Orthodontics in 18 months.  She has been pain free since the 2nd month of treatment as Dr. Allen promised her.  Now 3 years later, her teeth are the exact same as Dr. Allen left them, equilibrated into ideal function.   The pain has never returned. 


We call this a huge success. Congratulations Keri!
