Dentistry/How do I find TMJ specialist in Connecticut


I'm interested in reversing my previous orthodontics.  Is there a doctor in Connecticut you that know of who will do this?

Carolan- I'm not sure I know the type of doctor you are looking for.  If it is for reversing orthodontics, it is one type of doctor ( and I need to know if it is the facial change you are unhappy with or the way the teeth line up).  So please get back and let me know what aspect of the orthodontic result you are unhappy with.
