Q.

Non Invasive Orthodontics

Hi there. I have really badly positioned teeth due to the fact that i sucked on my finger and thumb until i was first year varsity. In high school i did go to see an orthodntist (1986) - who said i would need surgical interventions etc. My mum (health worker) advised that surgery to that area involved working close to the facial nerves, and that there''s no guarantee that a surgeon won''t damage one. So I did not have it. At 37, I would like to start some dental work to get my teetch straightened but would only go for a non invasive treament - is there anything or anyone you could reccommend?

Thanks
