Crowding of the teeth

This boy started treatment at age 11 and wore braces for 26 months. He loves his new smile.





Open bite: front teeth don’t touch

This girl sucked her thumb as a young child. She started treatment at age 13. She had braces and a special appliance — called a crib — to retrain the tongue, for 28 months. Now she can bite the lettuce out of a sandwich.





Deep overbite: lower front teeth bite into palate

This man, age 25, required braces and jaw surgery to correct his severe overbite. Treatment lasted two years. His problem could have been corrected without surgery if he had been treated before he was a teenager.





Missing lateral incisors

This woman’s lateral incisors were missing since birth. She had braces for 20 months to move the teeth into their correct positions, then the missing teeth were replaced with bonded "Maryland" bridges.





Underbite: lower front teeth in front of upper teeth

This patient’s underbite was causing her jaw joint discomfort and excessive wear patterns on her teeth. After about 30 months of treatment starting at age 32, she now finds smiling and chewing much easier.





Spacing of teeth

This patient was bothered by the spaces between his teeth. Braces closed the spaces and gave him an ideal bite in 24 months. Special glued-in retainers help keep the spaces closed.





Overjet: protruding front teeth

At age ten, this girl had a big overjet, with the top teeth protruding 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. At age 13, she was proudly displaying her new smile.





Non-braces treatment

Sometimes braces are not needed to get noticeable improvements in tooth alignment. This patient was first seen at age seven for crowding of the lower permanent 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.





Phase One

This boy’s parents were concerned about both aesthetics and the health of the erupting permanent teeth when they brought him to the orthodontist at age eight. The lower front teeth were crowded and touching the palate, and the upper front teeth were extremely displaced from their normal positions. After 12 months of Phase-One treatment with an expander and partial braces, the patient’s appearance and dental function were vastly improved.

When is a good time to consider orthodontic treatment?

  • It's never a good time ( is like having a baby)  however, there are so many benefits of having a stunning smile! You become kissable, marriageable and employable! 
  • Orthodontics is like plastic surgery on steroids, even better. Not to mention the boost in confidence! Once all facial structures are in the right place, we age beautifully!  We can easily erase years of someone's smile just by enhancing that artistic little curve in between the lips, and bleach one's teeth, and Voila! You get a lot of compliments!  No need to spend a fortune on fake teeth!
  • Beautifully aligned teeeth are a breeze to maintain and a delight to enjoy.  Brushing and flossing are easy, and motivational!  We see generations of youngsters that never experienced a cavity, undertake othodontic treatment. That is something to aspire to, and can seriously boost one's self-confidence.
  • Maloccusions or bad bites and misalignment left untreated,  will usually get worse —it will cost more and take longer to fix later, not to mention the time opportunity missed to enjoy a great heathy smile.
