Unregulated AGGA Dental Device Causing Patients Severe Injuries and Disfigurement
The Anterior Growth Guidance Appliance (AGGA) (also known as the Osseo-Restoration Appliance) is a dental device designed to expand the jaw of adult patients in a non-surgical way. However, users are claiming that the device severely damaged their mouths, causing extreme pain, tooth loss, and permanent mouth disfigurement.
Court records reveal that over 10,000 dental patients have received AGGA, but the device remains unproven and unregulated. Patients typically pay approximately $7,000 for the device, which has never undergone evaluation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). An investigation conducted by KHN and CBS News uncovered that the medical device was never submitted to the FDA for review, as is typically expected of device companies. However, AGGA continues to be sold at numerous dental facilities nationwide to patients who are largely unaware of the lack of government scrutiny.
