A 33 year old lady had a missing upper right premolar tooth which and the gap was to be replaced with an implant. Before the implant could be fitted, she came for orthodontic treatment to correct her overbite and straighten her teeth to allow the implant to be placed correctly. Treatment was carried out with upper and lower fixed braces taking 20 months, followed by placement of the implant.
A 20 year old lady had crowded teeth and wanted to change her smile. The crowding was severe, and we needed to remove teeth to create space for straightening. Her molar teeth had some large fillings due to poorly formed enamel (hypoplastic enamel), and we removed all four first molar teeth. Upper and lower fixed braces were fitted with orthodontic treatment taking 23 months. She completed her post-grad degrees with perfect smiles for her graduation photos.
A 23 year old lady did not like her overlapping front teeth, and the way they were leaning to the right side. She had a lower left premolar tooth removed in her teens which resulted in the lower midline being shifted to the left side. We did not want to remove any further teeth, and the lower midline shift was accepted in its current position. We carried out orthodontic treatment with upper and lower fixed braces which took 15 months. She was a busy junior doctor and her appointment intervals were more flexible wearing Damon braces. She was thrilled with her new smile.
A 31 year old lady had a baby canine tooth and the adult canine tooth impacted immediately behind this tooth. The baby tooth was removed before fitting her fixed braces. Orthodontic treatment with upper and lower fixed braces was carried out, taking 19 months to straighten her impacted canine tooth and correcting her crossbite. A fantastic result allowing our patient to keep her canine teeth in the right positions.
A 35 year old lady did not like the appearance of her front teeth and felt her canine teeth were sticking out. There was severe crowding with both the upper and lower teeth. She was a busy working mum, and had been thinking about correcting her teeth for many years, finally deciding the time was right. We removed four molar teeth due to the severe crowding and fitted fixed braces to straighten her teeth and bring the canine teeth into their correct positions. She was so happy with her smile
