Before my treatment at Jefferson Dental for orthopedic purposes, I was not happy with the form of my mouth. My lips seemed to be too flat and my jaw was causing severe headaches. Since my treatment, the headaches have disappeared and my lips have more character. And of course my teeth are straight and I now have a wide smile. Thank you Jefferson Dental.
