A successful non-extraction case before and after treatment with Braces.
Trapped Upper Canines
The upper canines were trapped, so we used an expander and braces to bring them down into the correct position.
In this case, extraction of the teeth was needed before and after treatment with Invisalign and Braces.
By using maxillary expansion and upper braces we avoided having to apply lower braces and saved the teeth from getting chipped.
Cross Bite Correction
Surgery was used first to correct the cross bite and open bite, then braces were later used to fix the spacing issues.
Lower Schwartz Retainer
Before and after using a Lower Schwartz Retainer to create more space for the teeth to beautifully align.
Open Bite Correction
Surgery was first used to correct the open bite, and then a combination of clear and metal braces was used to align the teeth.
She obtained a great smile without extraction by using headgear during early treatment with braces.
This young man had a trapped tooth. Early care corrected the problem, and we will apply braces when he gets a little older to fix the alignment issues.
