He has a fantastic smile and happy to hear that he is considering dentistry for his future.
Phase 1 Treatment
This patient came to the office as a young girl with the concerns of a narrow top jaw and an anterior open bite where the top and bottom teeth do not meet when the back molars are biting. She started her phase 1 orthodontic treatment to widen her top jaw with a palatal expander and headgear to change her bite so that the front teeth meet when she bites. These types of skeletal corrections must be done prior to puberty while the child still has many baby teeth. Once her permanent teeth came in, she chose metal braces as her orthodontic appliance to perfect and align her teeth. Her hard work through the years shows in her gorgeous smile.
