The ALF (Alternative Active Lightwire Functional) Appliance is a light wire appliance that is fitted to the dental arches to provide a continuous light force to the jawbones and teeth, which is more beneficial than applying heavy continuous forces.


Dr. Rick Soordhar & Dr. Vick Soordhar have been providing ALF Orthodontic treatment for kids, teens, and adults for over 10 years

TMJ & Non Extraction Braces Treatment | Tourettes & Neck Tics Comorbidity

This is a 4 year follow video of our 5 year old boy who presented to the office with an upper and lower jaw mal-relationship and TMJ Disorder (TMD) disorder. His parents main concerns were the upper and lower jaw and tooth misalignment, also known as a malocclusion. Their other concerns are his teeth grinding and jaw clicking. Mom also reports the child has neck tics, sore neck, neck pain, trouble focusing, constant cough, light sensitivity and mouth breathing. The parent's believe he has "Tourette's Syndrome" but it has not been diagnosed by the neurologist. A cephalometric x-ray was used to verify his upper and lower jaw misalignment and the treatment was directed to treating his maxillo-mandibular (upper and lower jaw) malrelationship. DR. SOORDHAR AND OASIS DENTAL DO NOT MAKE ANY CLAIMS IN "CURING" OR "TREATING" "PROVIDING TREATMENT FOR" HIS MOTOR MOVEMENT DISORDER, NECK TICS OR "TOURETTE" LIKE SYMPTOMS.
