Front teeth do not touch
This patient sucked her thumb as a young child. She began Phase I treatment at age 11 to eliminate the habit and retrain the tongue for 10 months. A few years later, she followed with Phase II treatment. She can now bite the lettuce out of a sandwich!
Lower front teeth bite into palate
This patient had a very deep bite and a large overjet with the top teeth protruding beyond the bottom. She had full braces with an appliance that improved her growth pattern and now she can smile with confidence.
Lower front teeth in front of upper teeth
This patient had an underbite and an asymmetric bite, compromising the lower front teeth. She began Phase I treatment to address the underbite at the age of 10. After 10 months of treatment, the underbite was corrected and the asymmetric growth pattern was discontinued. A few years later, she followed with 22 months of Phase II Invisalign® treatment to address the midlines and finalize the alignment.
Protruding front teeth
At the age of 11, the patient had a large overjet that trapped the lower lip. She had braces and needed to have two teeth removed. During her orthodontic treatment, she unfortunately had trauma to a front tooth. Thankfully, the braces held the teeth together and prevented an avulsion of the tooth. She completed her treatment and will now have whitening for the traumatized tooth. At age 13, she was proudly displaying her new smile.
This patient began treatment at age 12 and wore braces for 28 months. She had a lot of crowding which caused some teeth to become impacted because they did not have the space to erupt. She needed a few teeth removed but now all of the teeth fit. She loves her new smile and brushing is much easier now!
This young adult patient was treated years ago during her adolescence with braces. She began Invisalign® treatment for 20 months to address the relapse from not wearing her retainers. She loves her smile and will not forget to wear her retainers this time!
The patient’s right lateral incisor was congenitally missing and the left lateral incisor was smaller in size. She had braces for 29 months to regain space for the missing tooth. At the end of the treatment, the missing tooth was replaced with a bonded “Maryland” bridge with future plans for an implant when her growth has ceased.
The patient’s lateral incisor teeth were malformed and smaller in size. They also were erupting ectopically. She had braces for 29 months to position the teeth for her dentist’s restorative treatment. This was a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment. She was amazed to see what a difference the restorative treatment made with her smile and hasn’t stopped smiling since.
This adult patient had been dealing with this bite for several years. She was functioning mostly on the left side. The asymmetry was addressed with Invisalign® treatment involving elastics to address the asymmetry. Now she can bite evenly on both sides.
