Treatment Duration: 28 months
This patient came to our office looking to improve the crowding of her teeth. Before treatment she had a narrow smile, severe overbite, severe crowding, class 2 bite (when the upper jaw and/or teeth are ahead of the bottom jaw and/or teeth), narrow arches, and peg lateral on upper left.
Our patients treatment plan involved upper and lower braces,the use of rubber bands, and restorative treatment of the peg lateral, by the talented Dr. Pichardo at Citrus Dental of Inverness. Treatment for this case took just over 2 years.
In this amazing transformation we were able to correct all of the pre-existing orthodontic concerns, improving the overbite, correcting the class 2 to a class 1 proper bite, eliminating the crowding, aligning the midlines, and widening and broadening the smile. The shape of the peg lateral incisor was improved through a wonderful restoration by the patient's general dentist.
This case shows an amazing transformation and teamwork between myself as the orthodontist, the patient who did an amazing job wearing rubber bands, and the general dentist to restore an undersized tooth.
