Case Study 3

A 53 years old lady who had previously worn fixed braces in her teens had noticed that the upper teeth have started to relapse with a gap opening up between the front teeth. She was concerned with her overall smile. She was treated with surgical assisted maxillary expansion followed by upper and lower self-ligating ceramic braces over an 18 months duration. An upper fixed retainer was fitted behind the teeth to maintain their long-term positions. Now she has a full beautiful smile visible from all angle at all times.
