Case Study 1

A 28 years old gentleman was concerned about the tilting of his front teeth and worried it would get worse. He had previously worn fixed braces in his teens had noticed that the upper teeth were beginning to relapse with a gap opening up between the front teeth. He did not wish to have fixed braces again but wanted to have the upper teeth straightened to close the gap. I carried out treatment for the upper teeth with aligners (Invisalign) and successfully closed the gap and moved the teeth back into their correct positions over a treatment duration of 7 months. An upper fixed retainer was fitted behind the teeth as well as removable retainers to maintain their long-term positions.
