Patient 1

This patient was miserable due to her teeth. She had an ectopic canine tooth in the palate, narrow upper dental arch, and prominent and rotated upper teeth. The ectopic tooth was aligned using a surgically attached gold chain and she had two upper premolars extracted along with a quad helix and fixed metal braces. Treatment time was over 24 months but "well worth it!"
