This 11 year old boy wore braces for 26 months to correct his crowded teeth. He loves his new smile.

Crowding of The Teeth

This 13 year old developed an open bite after sucking her thumb as a young child. She wore braces, and a special appliance called a crib for 28 months to correct her bite and give her a brand new smile.

Open Bite: Front Teeth Don't Touch

This 25 year old patient got braces and jaw surgery to correct his overbite. The treatment took two years, and could have been corrected without surgery if he addressed the issue when he was younger.

Deep Overbite: Lower Front Teeth Bite Into Palate

This patient’s lateral incisors never grew in. She wore braces for under 2 years and was able to completely perfect her smile with the help of some ‘Maryland” bridges.

Missing Lateral Incisors

This Patient’s went in to correct her underbite at age 32 because it was causing her jaw joint discomfort and harmful wear on her teeth. After about 30 months she now finds smiling and chewing with confidence easy.

Underbite: Lower Front Teeth in Front of Upper Teeth

Patient was troubled by the spaces between his teeth. In 24 months, braces closed the spaces and gave him an ideal bite.

Spacing of Teeth

This10 year old had a severe overjet, where the top teeth protrude beyond the bottom. She had two phases of treatment. The first helped her jaws to grow more harmoniously and the second aligned her teeth and bite. By the time she was 13, she could proudly display her new smile.

Overjet: Protruding Front Teeth

Sometimes braces are not needed to improve your smile. This 7 year old was seen for crowding of the lower teeth. A procedure was performed to reduce the width of the adjacent baby teeth and the permanent incisors aligned on their own in nine months.

Non-Braces Treatment

The 8 years old’s parents were concerned about both aesthetics and health of his teeth the way they were growing in. After 12 months of Phase-One treatment with an expander and partial braces, the look and dental function of his smile were vastly improved.
