Deep Overbite: Lower Front Teeth Bite Into Palate

This adult patient, age 25, required braces and jaw surgery to correct a severe overbite, with treatment spanning just less than two years. His problem could have been corrected without surgery if he had been treated as a teenager or earlier.

Missing Lateral Incisors

This patient’s lateral incisors were congenitally missing. She had braces to move the teeth into the correct position, then the missing teeth were replaced with bonded “Maryland” bridges.

Under Bite: Lower Front Teeth In Front Of Upper Teeth

Patient’s underbite was causing her jaw joint discomfort and excessive wear patterns on her teeth. After 30 months of treatment starting at age 32, she now finds smiling and chewing much easier. This is another case of starting treatment later in life, causing lengthier and more extensive treatment.

Spacing Of Teeth

Patient was bothered by the spaces between his teeth. Braces closed the spaces and gave him an ideal bite before his senior high pictures. Perfect smile for picture day!

Overbite: Protruding Front Teeth

At age 10, patient had a large overbite with the top teeth protruding beyond the bottom. She had two phases of treatment. The first helped her jaws to grow more harmoniously and the second aligned her teeth and bite. Before she started high school, she was proudly displaying her new smile.

Non-Braces Treatment

Sometimes braces are not needed to get noticeable improvements in tooth alignment. This patient was first seen at age seven for crowding of the lower permanent teeth. A procedure was performed to reduce the width of the adjacent baby teeth and the permanent incisors aligned on their own in nine months.

Phase-One

Patient’s parents were concerned about both aesthetics and the health of the erupting permanent teeth when they brought him to the orthodontist at age eight. The lower front teeth were crowded and they touched the palate, and the upper front teeth were extremely displaced from their normal positions. After the Phase-One treatment with an expander and partial braces, patient’s appearance and dental function were vastly improved.
