This 12 year old boy was being teased at school due to the appearance of the upper front teeth. In addition, the upper left incisor tooth was protruding forwards and catching the lower lip causing a ‘lip trap’. He had a number of baby teeth remaining but we were able to improve the appearance and the ‘bite’ on the upper front teeth by fitting an upper fixed brace on the upper four incisors and molar teeth. Over the course of 5 months the upper front teeth had corrected and the bite was improved. He is now wearing an upper retainer while waiting for the remaining teeth to fall out. He is now a very happy and confident young man.
