Telehealth 2 Months Progress

Telehealth 2 Months Progress

Here's another great example of a telehealth photo, and comparing progress from two months for treatment progress! Great strides :) This is a very complex orthodontic case - where we worked hand-in-hand with an oral surgeon to manage a canine impaction causing root damage to the front teeth. This patient has an openbite, posterior crossbite and class III malocclusion.

This patient developed spacing and incisor flaring due to fixed/permanent retainer side effects. We were able to re-set the teeth, fine-tune smile details and create a wonderful outcome!

Open Bite Treatment

Open Bite Treatment

This complex case involved closure of an anterior AND posterior open bite (he was only hitting in 3 places before treatment!). Crowding was unraveled and the smile was developed

Through Aligning the teeth and opening the bite, we were able to additionally improve this patient's facial profile. She looks younger and more balanced!

Deep Bite Treatment (part 2)

Deep Bite Treatment (part 2)

This patient had a severe deep bite hitting the roof of the mouth and severe crowding/narrow arches. We opened the bite and even improved her facial profile

Deep Bite Treatment Arches (part 3)

We carefully unraveled severe crowding and created full and uniform arch forms, while opening the collapse bite, as well

This adult patient has been undergoing long-term treatment for periodontal disease; unraveling crowding is only helpful in maintaining healthy tissues and improving abilities to clean teeth well! We are moving the teeth 1/2 as fast to take precautions

We unraveled crowding and developed the dental archforms here to be more ovoid, allowing for a well defined smile arc

Crowding Treatment

We unraveled moderate crowding and a mild open bite in this Invisalign case

Here is another example where fixed retainers did not work out - we closed down the bite and re-set the teeth to fit well together

Great fitting Invisalign trays - having the teeth slightly apart is very helpful for telehealth purposes to evaluate aligner fit!

Open Bite Treatment (in progress)

Open Bite Treatment (in progress)

6 months' progress on an Invisalign, non-surgical and non-extraction treatment. Significant bite closure and smile development achieved. This patient was told in past 4-year's treatment and surgery were her only options, and she's thrilled to bite into her pizza!

Deep Bite Invisalign Treatment

Deep Bite Invisalign Treatment

This comprehensive Invisalign case corrected a deep bite and narrow archform - the bite opened as quick as four months in!

In just 3 months, we closed the bite and socked in his occlusion in this accelerated Invisalign lite treatment with Propel vibration. His smile arc is more harmonic, as well. The pre-existing gum recession is due decreased hygiene with a previous fixed retainer. He is much more aware of the importance to brush and floss!

Occlusal Cant Correction

Occlusal Cant Correction

A dental cant is when the plane of occlusion is tilted when viewing from the front, and is generally visible (especially to orthodontists!) when > 4 degrees. It can be be a challenge to correct sometimes. Check out this smile evolution- correcting the cant as well as the overjet, which was the patient’s primary objective.

This patient was a perfectionist and wanted to resolve her mild anterior crowding. She did not anticipate a such a smile transformation - it's all about the details! Through broadening the smile arc her smile is brighter, uniform and enhances her entire face! She was thrilled with the outcome.

Conservative "No-Prep" Veneers

Conservative "No-Prep" Veneers

This patient started with rotated narrow upper incisors. We unraveled the crowding and proportionately spaced his incisors to allow for no-prep/conservative veneer placement. We gave him mid-course temporary veneers so he can smile for his wedding in Belgium! Now his smile is full and proportionate, and all completed in less than 9 months with the help of Propel orthodontics

Open Bite Treatment

Open Bite Treatment

This patient used Invisalign and the Propel vPro5 device to close her bite in less than one year. Progress shown at 7 months; treatment completed at 9 months. The patient's tongue thrust habit also resolved once her bite was closed down :)

Open Bite Treatment

Open Bite Treatment

Alex had a tongue thrust habit and an 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 spaces.

Invisalign Combined Treatment

Invisalign Combined Treatment

This Invisalign patient had poor crown aesthetics on her right central incisor plus disproportionate tooth sizes, which led to multidisciplinary treatment with a prosthodontist! We improved her dental/facial midlines, smile contour, set back her flared upper teeth, alleviated a crossbite on right side and allowed for better positioning of two new beautiful crowns for her central incisors! She is SO happy with the result, and so are we.

Surgical Orthodontics

Surgical Orthodontics

Marlene started with a Class III malocclusion, posterior and anterior crossbite, as well as a skeletal open bite and tongue habit. A surgical treatment plan was accepted. The treatment began with rapid palatal expansion to treat the posterior crossbite. Working together with the surgeon, the patient underwent a mandibular setback with a rotational repositioning to close her open bite. The improvement in Marlene's facial profile is apparent, while she maintains her great smile.

Orthodontic Extraction Treatment

Orthodontic Extraction Treatment

Sam 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!

Class II Crowding

Class II Crowding

Alexandra 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.

Deep Bite Treatment

Deep Bite Treatment

David had a deep bite and an impacted premolar up top (AKA blocked out), 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.

Express Invisalign

Express Invisalign

This Accelerated/Limited Invisalign patient came in and said he had less than two months to improve his smile before moving to Sweden! We gave him all that we could in 50 days! While it's not perfect, it's a HUGE improvement and he was so pleased with the outcome.

Class II Crowding

Class II Crowding

Veronica had a severe Class II malocclusion with moderate crowding and dental arch asymmetry. The malocclusion was treated with an appliance 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!
