Crowding of the teeth
Treatment began at age 11 and lasted for a total of 26 months. He is delighted with the results of his orthodontic treatment.
Open bite - The front teeth do not meet properly.
As a youngster, Patient sucked her thumb. She began therapy when she was 13 years old. For 28 months, she wore braces and a unique equipment called a crib to retrain her tongue. She now has a very precise bite
Deep overbite - The front teeth of the lower jaw bite into the palate.
This 25-year-old adult patient underwent braces and jaw surgery to repair his significant overbite, which took two years to complete. If he had been addressed when he was a teenager, his issue may have been resolved without surgery.
Missing lateral incisors
The lateral incisors of this patient were absent from birth. She used braces for 20 months to straighten her teeth, and subsequently bonded “Maryland” bridges were used to replace the lost teeth.
Underbite - The lower front teeth are in front of the upper front teeth.
The patient’s underbite was producing pain in her jaw joints and excessive wear patterns on her teeth. She now finds it much easier to smile and chew after around 30 months of therapy beginning at the age of 32.
Spacing of teeth
The gaps between his teeth upset the patient. In 24 months, braces corrected the gaps and gave him an excellent bite. Special glued-in retainers aid in keeping the gaps closed.
Overjet - Front teeth that protrude
At 10 years old, the patient had a significant overjet, with the top teeth extending beyond the bottom. She was treated in two stages. The first aided in the harmonic growth of her jaws, while the second straightened her teeth and bite. By the age of 13, she proudly displayed her new grin.
Braces are not always required to provide notable changes in teeth alignment. This patient was originally examined when he was seven years old for crowding of his bottom permanent teeth. After a process to narrow the gap between the neighboring baby teeth, the permanent incisors aligned on their own after nine months.
When the patient’s parents took him to the orthodontist at the age of eight, they were worried about both aesthetics and the health of the emerging permanent teeth. Lower front teeth were crowded and in contact with the palate, while upper front teeth were significantly displaced from their usual locations. After a year of Phase-One therapy with an expander and partial braces, the patient’s aesthetics and dental function improved dramatically.
