Speaking as someone whose hobby horse is TMD (temporomandibular joint
disorder), brought on by childhood braces and a hamhanded removal of my
wisdom teeth at eighteen (I was predisposed, but these things were what made
it actually happen), be extremely dubious of *anything* that will mess with
your daughter's jaw joint and/or bite, whether temporarily or permanently.
Breathing well is a wonderful thing. So is being able to chew without pain.
