Product Description:
 
Your child needs an expander. Most people need permanent tooth extractions. You're too old for orthodontics. You'll be in treatment for about two years. Orthodontics is painful. Lies, lies, lies, lies and yes, more lies.

The Truth About Orthodontics: A Consumer's Guide to a Beautiful Smile gives you the information you need to make the best decisions for your orthodontic care. Written by a doctor who is both an orthodontist and a physician, this fact-filled and entertaining book walks you through the basics, explaining old treatments versus new developments, and debunking the lingering lies that tend to feed people's fear of orthodontics, preventing them from enjoying the benefits a beautiful smile can provide.

Discover how the current understanding of tooth movement has transformed smile design into a process that can be shorter and more comfortable. Now, you can be prepared with the knowledge you need to find the treatment that will most benefit your smile. Engaging, humorous, and easy to read, this book about orthodontics will actually give you something to smile about.

2.0 out of 5 stars.  In the words of Lee Corso, "Not so fast!", May 11, 2015
By R. Burns Jr.
Admittedly, there is good information here, but as a practicing orthodontist for nearly 30 years and a clinical professor at THE Ohio State University, I think I can recognize an agenda when I see one. And there is an agenda here. First of all, what does being a physician (actually a dual degree oral surgeon, but details, details...) have to do with being an orthodontist? Absolutely nothing, except that you as a lay person will be impressed. The bigger agenda here is that Dr. Graham is a paid spokesperson for the Ormco Corporation, the manufacturer of the Damon System, which is (at least for some) the big deal in orthodontics right now. It's nothing really new, or even that innovative, but Ormco has spent many millions marketing to the public and the orthodontic profession that their (ridiculously expensive) bracket (brace) system is better than anything out there. It's a fad, and I've seen many come and go. My prediction is that this one will be gone in 5-10 years when everyone figures out that it's basically a gimmick, and that it has serious drawbacks. So read the book, but take the subtle suggestion that the Damon system is superior ("it's currently the only way that I would treat my family"), with a grain of salt. After all, he's paid to say that... Incidentally, I'd bet a good amount of money that the other orthodontists who rate the book with 5 stars are Damonites too... They all drink the same Kool-Aid!

5.0 out of 5 stars.  The Truth- and that it is...., September 02, 2014
By Alison
He does it again! Another "something" spectacular by Dr. John Graham. He has provided a wealth of clarification in an orthodontic world of confusion. He has written this in a way of making all the topics easy to understand- no matter if you are a parent, patient, future patient, doctor or clinician. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Everyone should read- excellent, excellent, excellent!, August 21, 2014
By mm (United States)
After reading this book I am going to recommend to all my friends that they do the same. It seems that everyone who has ever had orthodontic work done starts by getting teeth pulled. Dr Graham talks about the negative affects that creates and much, much more. It's a short read, but something every parent should know. That you Dr. Graham for taking the time to write this for us.

John Graham has done it again! I have never had a dull moment with him. He is full of energy when he is teaching others and also on a personal level. I highly recommend this great read to any of my patients that have questions about orthodontics in today's world. It gives them a basic knowledge in the advances in orthodontics. I am proud to call Dr. Graham a colleague and friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Very informative!, August 07, 2014
By goanywhere
This book provides great insight about many elements of orthodontics and orthodontic care, without overwhelming the reader with too much information. It is an easy to understand discussion that does not require the reader to know anything about the subject matter. This really made me think differently about orthodontic care - in a good way. I think it's a great read and is very well put together!
