Before And After Photos
Teenage female patient – embarrassed by very prominent upper left canine and crowded dental arches – treated with upper and lower fixed appliances. No teeth extracted and great result.
Used conventional metal straight wire brackets for this case. She wanted coloured modules ( rings) and wanted them to show!
Jo had always disliked her rather prominent upper front teeth. Working within the dental profession she was very keen to have her teeth aligned and fully understood the importance of looking after her teeth and braces. We decided to use Damon fixed braces ( Damon Clear in the upper arch and metal Damon Q in the lower). Jo was very keen to avoid any extractions to create space for alignment – instead we gently widened and increased the length of the dental arches and carefully developed enough space to align the teeth.
Jo has maintained her super results by wearing her retainers as advised and we are delighted with her results.
This young man (BD) was in his late twenties and wanted to improve the appearance of his prominent upper front teeth. The upper front teeth protruded over the lower front teeth by 10mm ( this value is normally 2-4mm). There were also spaces between the upper front teeth. All these factors are shown on the pre-treatment photograph.
We used upper and lower fixed orthodontic appliances to move the upper front teeth back and close the spaces between them. In addition all the upper and lower teeth were placed in to well aligned positions. This is all demonstrated in the post-treatment photos.
Treatment was completed in just under 12 months and was faster than expected. The excellent co-operation and appliance care given by BD was a very important factor in this successful outcome!
