Could Teeth be the Culprits to your Headaches?

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 10 years.  Never did she think her teeth were the culprits.

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 4 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!
