Severe Crowding | Early Orthodontics: Palatal Expander & Top Braces | Upper & Lower Crowding | Severe Upper & Lower Crowding


Case Study #1 Severe Crowding

Problem: Top and bottom crowding. The back teeth do not fit together well.

Treatment: An expander to make more space for teeth, followed by upper and lower braces for 22 months.

    


Case Study #2 Early Orthodontics: Palate Expander and Top Braces

Problem: Underbite (underbite: upper front teeth behind lower teeth) and crossbite (crossbite: upper teeth fall inside the lower teeth when biting down). The underbite is causing the lower front teeth to be pushed too far forward.

Treatment: Palate expander to widen top jaw to fit the bottom jaw, then top front braces to bring the top teeth in front of the bottom teeth. The lower teeth self-corrected into position (no treatment was done on the lower teeth). Total treatment time 11 months.
