My TMJ dentist, Dr. Dalton at Central Dental, would very much agree with you. Jessica, my 22 year old daughter is currently in orthodontics with him for the purpose of resolving TMJ and opening her airway which were the goals of my treatment with him as well. Unfortunately, both of us had orthodontics previously along with permanent teeth removal from orthodontists who were only concerned with aesthetics and really messed us up.
Be very careful who does orthodontics on your children and never let them remove permanent teeth from a crowded mouth,
