Do Not Let an Orthodontist Extract Healthy Teeth (although Wisdom Teeth Are O.k) Long Island, NY

I decided to have orthodontic work and the orthodontist extracted 4 teeth 2 on top and 2 on the bottom. I started to suffer Sleep apnea symptoms and now have a documented sleep disorder. I had a cross-bite and should have been referred to an oral surgeon first. Adult palate expander do work!! Still in braces and it's been a year. I stopped and would not let him pull back the bottom. What would happen to my big tongue? Now I am in New York and found the help I need but it is going to cost me my life savings to save my life and get it in order!

Sorry type o - o.k to allow extraction of wisdom teeth. Always get second opinions and interviews with doctors for any major work.
I would just get bimaxillary surgery; the suture is already closed in adults so you are unnecessarily taking extra time.

I'm sorry to hear of the horrible difficulties you are facing.  I hope that insurance is paying for some of that $500k?  I've never seen a price that high before--what exactly do you need to have done in order to fix everything?

Sorry, I changed that it's about 30,000.00 for replacement of teeth 10,000 for new orthodontic treatment and dentist. Also all the specialty doctors I have had to see in network and out network. Lost of work $$$, as I can only work part time and may lose my job. In addition the stress and losing my hair. If you don't sleep hair falls out...
