Consultant Specialist Orthodontist with over 25 years' experience
A 15 years old girl was concerned about the gap between her front teeth and crowding of back teeth especially the upper canine teeth being too prominent. I carried out orthodontic treatment with rapid maxillary expansion followed by upper and lower self-ligating fixed braces. No teeth were removed as sufficient space was created. Retention was by bonded and removable retainers. At the end of the treatment, she was able to fully bite her teeth together along with a beautiful fantastic smile she is thrilled with! The braces came off just in time for her prom party - She was looking forward to take some beautiful happy Prom Day photos!!
