This 52 year old lady wore fixed braces when she was younger and also had two upper teeth and a lower incisor tooth removed at the time. However, over time the teeth have moved and showed a degree of relapse. Her concerns were the gap between the two front teeth and her overbite.
Her work commitments involved travelling abroad a significant part of the time and often to remote destinations where orthodontists are rare to find in an emergency. Our patient was keen to wear a removable brace as this would fit in with her lifestyle. Orthodontic treatment was carried out with Invisalign braces and we were able to maintain a very small gap between her two front teeth as this gap was a family characteristic and she did not want to lose this distinguishing feature. Treatment took 15 months followed by retainers. A really happy smiling patient.
