Case 1

 

This patient had a tongue thrust habit in concurrence with a dental open bite. A habit breaker was placed and maintained throughout the course of his treatment, which allowed for passive bite closure while the braces straightened and closed the generalized spacing that was present.

Case 2

 

This patient started with a Class III malocclusion, posterior and anterior crossbite, as well as a skeletal open bite and tongue habit. Based on her skeletal and facial diagnosis, a surgical treatment plan was accepted. The treatment began with rapid palatal expansion, which treated the posterior crossbite. Braces straightened the teeth into ideal position before the patient's surgical correction. Working together with the surgeon, we decided that the patient's smile was fitting to her face, and she could correct her skeletal discrepancies with a single jaw surgery instead of both top and bottom. The patient underwent a lower jaw surgery: a mandibular setback with a rotational repositioning, which closed her open bite (hope that wasn't too confusing?!). The improvement in the patient's facial profile is apparent, while she maintains her great smile.

Case 4

 

This patient had a severe Class II malocclusion with moderate crowding and dental arch asymmetry. The malocclusion was treated with headgear and full-time wear of rubber bands. She did a great job and completely resolved the malocclusion, with a little help of growth on our side!

Case 5

 

This patient had severe crowding, most likely due to premature loss of his baby teeth and also just because he has large teeth! As a result, four premolars were extracted to make enough room for his teeth to fit. Definitely all straightened out and he still has a huge smile, you'd never know where he started!

Case 6

 

This patient had a deep bite and an impacted premolar up top (AKA stuck up inside his mouth), most likely due to early loss of his baby tooth. His molar moved forward and stole the premolar's space! With the help of braces and some springs, we were able to push that molar back where it belonged, and the premolar came in all on its own, avoiding a surgery! And hey, his bite opened up too.

Case 3

 

This patient had a Class II malocclusion with moderate dental crowding. Early treatment of the malocclusion was achieved with a Carriere Distalizer. She was a great rubber band wearer. Braces were placed to unravel her teeth and give her a fantastic smile.
