This 12-year-old boy had a very large overbite with the upper teeth protruding forwards. Treatment was carried out in two phases, firstly to correct the overbite with a functional brace, followed by fixed braces to perfectly straighten his teeth. By carrying out treatment at the right age, we could correct his large overbite without the need for any extractions. Treatment took 18 months.
A 12-year-old girl had crowded front teeth, an overbite and narrowness of the back teeth. Although there were a few baby teeth remaining, we were able to start treatment with fixed braces to widen her arch and create space for the new teeth. Her overbite was corrected and treatment took 13 months. A great new smile!
This 13-year-old girl had overlapping and twisted front teeth. Also when she closed her mouth, her teeth did not fully meet together - she had a reduced overbite. We carried out treatment with fixed braces to straighten her teeth and correct her bite, with treatment taking 14 months. A very happy patient.
A 25 year old gentleman was not happy with his bite. The upper and lower teeth did not meet together when he closed his mouth - called an open bite. In his teens, he had two upper teeth removed and braces. However, the open bite was not corrected. We treated him with upper and lower fixed braces along with the removal of two lower teeth to correct his bite. Brace treatment took 23 months, and just in time before he left for Australia.
A 27 year old lady had brace treatment when she was a child along with the removal of four teeth. When she came to see us, there was severe relapse of the teeth with crowding and a deep overbite. Relapse extraction cases are always one of the most challenging treatment cases. She was successfully treated with fixed braces with her overbite corrected and an amazing new smile.
