Case Study 17

A 14 years old boy wanted to improve his overall physical appearance and has disliked his front teeth protruding out. It was difficult for him to close his mouth and meet the lips together as the front teeth were too far forward. Orthodontic treatment was carried out by growth modification functional braces followed by self-ligating fixed braces to encourage lower jaw growth and to bring the front teeth into their correct positions. The treatment took 18 months and he was very happy with his new confident smile.
