Case 1: "CN"
CN was suffering from excessive overjet. This prevented him from biting normally into foods. We were able to improve this via orthodontic treatment (braces).
Case 2: "DM"
DM was suffering from severe crowding such that the upper right canine did not erupt properly. Rather, it erupted high and way out front being hidden by the upper (maxillary) lip. Via orthodontic treatment, using The Damon System techniques, no palatal expander was needed.
Case 3: "DP"
DP was the victim of a terrible accident. They were led to believe that some of the upper front teeth were not able to be saved. Via orthodontic treatment (braces) the teeth were positioned back to where the originally were. Then, by working closely with the cosmetic general dentist some cosmetic treatment was provided to restore his appearance and ability to chew.
Case 4: "KJ"
KJ was suffering from severe dental crowding which increased their risk to cavities. Orthodontic treatment was provided. As a result the risk of cavities was dramatically reduced, plus their smile was enhanced!! A definite improvement to her dental health.
Case 5: "LB"
LB was suffering from a constricted palate (the upper jaw was not growing laterally as it was supposed to) & dental arch. As a result she was having difficulty breathing and chewing foods properly.
Case 6: "MG"
MG was suffering from periodontal (gum tissue) disease such that the patient & general dentist feared loss of several teeth. After periodontal therapy only one tooth needed to be removed. MG completed orthodontic treatment successfully. Now they can eat with our fear of tooth loss during meals.
Case 7: "MR"
MR was suffering from an anterior crossbite (where an upper front tooth is behind a lower front tooth). Also, they were suffering from a “deep bite” (where the upper teeth cover too much of the lower front teeth when the teeth are made to touch). This caused tipping the upper (maxillary) right front tooth to tip backwards, pointing toward the tongue. Self esteem was low as they were self conscious about smiling. With orthodontic treatment (braces) these issues were corrected. Now, they are biting, chewing & smiling without concern.
