Nightmare, broke my bite and damaged my teeth.
I had a terrible experience with Dr. Paul Lee. It was a nightmare. My teeth became much much worse after the treatment, hurt all the time and he couldn?t fix all the bite problems he created during the treatment.
I started my treatment with him with straight teeth, a close to perfect bite (except for a bit overbite) and a beautiful smile, but my jaws were a bit protrusive. Dr. Paul Lee told me to have four premolars extracted to move the teeth back, and said that my facial profile would improve significantly after the treatment. He promised me to close the extraction gap, and said that he could also correct my overbite and align the midline of my lips with the midline of my teeth. He estimated the treatment length to be two years. Two years after the treatment, after spending over $5,000 and going through a lot of pain, my profile didn?t improve as much as he promised, my midlines were not aligned, my overbite got worse, and my previous good bite was broken. My upper teeth didn't move as much back as the lower teeth, the upper arch ended up being bigger than the lower arch, the lower left extraction gap was not closed, the bite on the both sides was not right, overbite got worse, and the upper left teeth hurt all the time. The worst nightmare was that towards the end of the treatment he found out that I didn?t have enough bones and couldn?t correct all my problems because he was afraid that I might lose my teeth if he moved the teeth further. The very sad thing is that before he started treatment and asked me to get four teeth extracted, he never mentioned anything wrong with my bones and never told me any risks (e.g. bone loss, gum recession, root resorption, etc.) associated with the treatment. He painted me a very rosy picture in order to get my business, but at the end, he left me with a broken bite and constantly hurting teeth. I can?t chew very well, my teeth hurt all the time, and I have difficulty closing my lips because of the big overbite.
