Before and After
Check out these results from our wonderful patients! The images speak for themselves!
This case presented with fairly dramatic crowding but without a large bite discrepancy. The teeth were aligned using braces without extractions.
Sometimes there are unusual combinations of crowding, spacing and in this case also missing teeth. Braces can make a big difference by aligning the teeth, eliminating crowding and spacing and producing the best possible bite. In this case teeth were removed to balance the missing tooth structure rather than expansion to recreate space for the missing teeth.
This case shows a combination of deep bite, protrusion and spacing. It was corrected without removal of teeth using bite correction appliances followed by full braces.
Pre-treatment there is a very, very large protrusion and deep bite. The teeth were corrected using braces with extractions to overcome the very large bite discrepancy.
This case presented with a very severe open bite pattern (front teeth a long way from meeting). The problem was based in the jaws and so was treated using a combination of braces and jaw surgery to close down the open bite.
Pre-treatment there is a combination of significant crowding, upper arch distortion and open bite (lack of interlocking of the front teeth). This case was corrected using braces with extractions.
This case shows severe crowding in a non-growing adult. The teeth were aligned using braces and extractions.
