For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontics. After your braces come off, you’ll feel more self-confident. Your dentist may also have discussed with you the benefits of having healthy teeth and proper jaw alignment. Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain.
This young adult patient came to our office with a deep bite, spacing, and impacted permanent upper canines (her baby teeth were still in place). We were able to correct these problems and bring the impacted permanent canines into place.
This teenage patient had upper front teeth that were tipped backwards and a very deep bite. With braces we were able to improve the bite and tooth position, which also improved the appearance of the gums.
Crowded teeth and an overbite were this patient’s main concerns. With braces and elastics, we were able to achieve a lovely smile and improved bite.
Sometimes there is not enough space for all of the teeth to fit into proper alignment and bite. This patient had premolar teeth removed along with braces to improve the angulation and alignment of the teeth and for much better alignment.
Orthodontic treatment resulted in much better appearance of the teeth, as well as an improved bite, which will prevent problems that would have occurred if the bite was not corrected.
After the teeth were aligned with braces, this patient had cosmetic dentistry to improve the size, shape and color of the upper front teeth.
