Before and afters: Modern fixed braces
This young girl disliked "everything about her teeth" and had metal fixed braces to correct her crowding. She obtained this lovely result in around 18 months.
This patient was unhappy with the "pointy upper teeth". She had a removable brace followed by fixed braces to achieve this beautiful result. No teeth were extracted.
This patient was deeply distressed by her reverse bite. She also disliked the crowding and did not wish to have jaw surgery to correct the main cause of this. She opted instead to have extraction of four teeth and fixed braces to move the teeth into the correct relationship.
This patient had a reverse overjet or class III bite. She had no teeth removed and metal fixed braces were worn to correct her to a class I bite with normal overjet. Total treatment time was 15 months.
